Zombies, Postmodernism and Art
Expanding on a talk I gave last year called Pentecost for the Zombie Apocalypse, I discuss the meaning of the zombie and the monster in general as a portent of cultural patterns.
By examining the traditional vision of the world and by exploring ancient stories. I trace a parallel to the development of modern art and contemporary culture through contemporary authors such as Jacques Derrida and John Vervaeke’s recent book, “Zombies in Western Culture”.
Finally I explore the positive place of the monster in the figure of St-Christopher.
