This week in Andy Spence’s Thematic Exposure tutorial, I made a lot of headway in my exhibition on the modern history of looting. I decided to divide up my exhibition into three parts: the first will focus on looting in Egypt during the 19th century, the second on when looting became industrialized in the 1960s, and the third on how overwhelmingly widespread and mechanized looting is today. Here are some really cool images I found for my section on Egypt. During the 19th century, Europeans got really into Egyptian antiquities and style. In addition to traveling to Egypt to get their exotic fix, they also brought a lot of Egypt back to Europe and created super elaborate and exaggerated exhibitions. I could spend all day looking for more images like this, and I actually I have to remind myself that I CAN because this is homework so it’s totally justified.
