Anderson & Low

Anderson & Low “are perhaps best known for their groundbreaking work with the National Danish Gymnastic Team” - which to my German eye uses a certain amount of the kind of fascist aesthtics popularized by Leni Riefenstahl. But it would be somewhat nonsensical to overemphasize this. Even though fascism rested a lot of its power on the display of strong men and women (and of arms) we don’t have to look too far to see these very same mechanisms displayed in democratic nations - especially the ones which want to go to war. As far as this aspect of human life is concerned the Roman “tempora mutantur et nos mutamur in illis” is simply wrong.
