The title of this show is inspired by W. Somerset Maugham’s 1915 novel much of which is autobiographical and in turn, was based on Part IV of Spinoza’s Ethics. Also subtitled Strength of Emotions it is about the human inability to control its emotions that results in a sort of slavery or bondage. Perhaps the most destructive of these is greed which is largely responsible for man’s inhumanity to man and many wars.
