The World Upside Down: Le monde a l'envers


| written by Richard William Hill

The world upside down is one in which the symbolic order is turned on its head. It is a world visualized by artists where killer rabbits hunt humans and Superman is a hero of the Soviet Union. It is the Plant of the Apes and a planet where British aristocrats lose their heads when they find themselves dressed in "African" fabrics. It is a place where Aboriginal North Americans dine out alfresco at Edouard Manet's expense.
