Algol: Tragedy of Power

Mon., Oct. 22, 7 p.m.
,

The Kemper Art Museum's Technofutures Film Series continues with director Hans Werckmeister's rarely seen parable Algol: Tragedy of Power. Algol is a coal miner who receives a visit from an alien being who passes along the secret of unlimited power. Armed with the keys to the industrial world, Algol becomes a wealthy and important man. But what about all those poor miners — what can they do when their jobs disappear overnight? Art directors Walter Reimann and Paul Scheerbart built massive sets influenced by Expressionist art, giving the film an otherworldly look. The digitally remastered version of Algol screens at 7 p.m. Monday, October 22, at the Landmark Tivoli Theatre (6350 Delmar Boulevard, University City; www.kemperartmuseum.wustl.edu). Washington University professor Diane Wei Lewis introduces the 1920 film, which is silent except for the score. Admission is free. free admission

Panoramas of the City

Through March 24, 2019

In a year in which the Missouri History Museum exhibition team has given us the stories of St. Louis' greatest civil rights freedom fighters and returned us to the glory days of Route 66, it would take something truly spectacular for the museum to outdo itself — and yet somehow it's done just that. The museum's new exhibition, Panoramas of the City, is as close to time travel as you can get without involving Morlocks. The show comprises seven floor-to-ceiling size images of scenes such as Charles Lindbergh speaking to a crowd of 100,000 people on Art Hill at his "welcome home" party and a 1920 march on Olive Street by the League of Women Voters. These massive photographs are joined by props and interactive media displays that give viewers a better understanding of the historical context of each scene. More than 60 panoramas of various sizes round out the exhibit, which will be on display from September 2 to August 12, 2018, at the Missouri History Museum (Lindell Boulevard and DeBaliviere Avenue; www.mohistory.org). free admission
