Event 10

Kevin Jackson – The Constellation of Genius

Venue: The Swan Ballroom
A glorious study of the remarkable year 1922 and the passing of an old world: the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, the end of British Liberalism, the thwarting of Marcus Garvey's dreams for a new Africa. Ulysses was published, Proust died and Hollywood transformed the nature of fame, making Charlie Chaplin the most recognisable man on the planet. Hitchcock directed his first feature, Kandinsky and Klee joined the Bauhaus and Louis Armstrong took the train from New Orleans to Chicago, heralding the beginning of modern jazz.
