Artaud’s manifestos on the Theater of Cruelty. Certainly transferable to other art forms. I read this 20+ years ago after discovering various early-20th Century avant-garde manifestos. Worth a reread with fresh eyes and more experience.
Holbein’s paintings are favorites and I’ve always wanted to track these down. Functions like a Memento Mori Tarot.
Le danse des morts à Bâle. Lithographs by Matthaeus Merian. Attributed to Holbein, but glorious riffs on the same subject matter. I found it in the Internet Archive.
I had always assumed this was a pop punk album I didn’t want to hear. I was completely wrong. Interesting production and fantastic songs. My favorite version of English punk dub/reggae so far. Feels like hints of no wave in the guitar playing and Ari Up’s vocals often feel proto-Bjork.
