In February of 1888 Vincent van Gogh traveled to Arles in the south of France to escape the frenzied atmosphere of madcap Paris. He made ambitious plans to found an artists’ colony that would breathe new life into French art. He finally succeeded in persuading Paul Gauguin to join him. The tumultuous story of what happened in the “Studio of the South” is one of the most dramatic in the history of modern art, and the paintings created there are among the most innovative and iconic images of the late 19th Century.

Capitalism is both a creator and destroyer, destroying the old to make way for the new. It creates inexpensive goods and services, creates new technologies, creates new values and new ways of seeing. It creates new wealth and new inequality. Capitalism is not only an economic system. It is also a system of thinking and feeling, almost a religion. This talk about the creative and destructive aspects of capitalism will explore how it shapes our thinking. Is cynicism an inevitable by-product of capitalism, like pollution and global warming -- a kind of pollution of the mind and heart?
