'Beyond the Visible: Hilma af Klint' (full documentary film)

YouTube caption

Hilma af Klint was an abstract artist before the term existed, a visionary, trailblazing figure who, inspired by spiritualism, modern science, and the riches of the natural world around her, began in 1906 to produce a series of huge, colorful, sensual, strange works without precedent in painting.

Subject of a recent smash retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum, af Klint was for years an all-but-forgotten figure in art historical discourse, before her long-delayed rediscovery.

Director Halina Dryschka's dazzling, course-correcting documentary describes not only the life and craft of af Klint, but also the process of her mischaracterization and erasure by both a patriarchal narrative of artistic progress and capitalistic determination of artistic value.

BehindTheMedspeak: Put M.D. after your name if you need to be a business

Il_1588xN.3498434256_4bo4 copy

Lots of companies only sell and ship to businesses and business addresses, so as an everyday person you're out of luck.

Not if you're a boj reader!

Even though I'm not incorporated or an LLC or anything remotely like a real business, I learned a long time ago that putting 

Joseph A. Stirt, M.D.

in the Company Name box when ordering online works 100% of the time.

The reason it works is because many doctors are indeed solo practitioners and so it's assumed they're businesses.

And don't worry about the fact you're lying: it's not like you're taking out someone's appendix or suchlike.

Allez!
