As we reach the end of a frenetic century, our world is largely shaped through nostalgia. Postmodern culture regenerates images from the past, apparently having exhausted new possibilities. The children of the ‘Woodstock generation’ turn into New Age hippies in the nineties. At the time of writing, Star Wars toys (c. 1980) are being featured in The Face. No matter how young you are, you’re a part of history.
