  7. 7. José Clemente Orozco. Gods of theModern World, 1932-1934. Fresco.One panel in a cycle of murals entitled An Epic of AmericanCivilization. Baker Memorial Library, Dartmouth College, NewHampshire, USA.
  8. 8. The Critique of LearningThe artist Orozco presentsthe argument against thepursuit of sterileknowledge.sterile: adj. unable toproduce children/totallyclean/free from bacteriaor any other livingmicroorganism.
  9. 9. The Critique of LearningThis painting is a warningagainst the academic(teacher/student of highereducation) who is completelyoccupied with sterile researchor learning that has no valueoutside of academia.academia: n. the environmentor community concerned withthe pursuit of research,education, and scholarship.
  10. 10. The Critique of LearningOrozco believed thatsterile education passesfor knowledge, but itactually keeps theyoung busy withoutgiving them any realwisdom orunderstanding.
  11. 11. The Critique of LearningThe rhythm of the lines isstrong, from theverticals of theacademic robes, to theblack and white of theskeleton’s ribs, to thebook spines below.
  12. 12. José Clemente Orozco. An Epic AmericanCivilization, 1932-1934. Fresco.A 20-panel cycle in Baker Memorial Library, Dartmouth College,New Hampshire, USA.
  13. 13. José’s thoughts… “The American continental races are now becoming aware of theirown personality, as it emerges from two cultural currents—theindigenous and the European. The great American myth ofQuetzalcoatl is a living one embracing both elements and pointingclearly, by its prophetic nature, to the responsibility shared equallyby the two Americas of creating here an authentic New Worldcivilization. I feel that this subject has a special significance for aninstitution such as Dartmouth College which has its origin in acontinental rather than in a local outlook—the foundation ofDartmouth, I understand, predating the foundation of the UnitedStates.” As Orozco surely had been told, Dartmouth College was charteredfor the purpose of “the education and instruction of Youth of theIndian Tribes in this Land . . . and also of English Youth and anyothers.”
