Wagner Bicentennial Symposium
Remembering Richard Wagner:
May 22, 1813–February 13, 1883
Richard Wagner was born 200 years ago today in Leipzig in the kingdom of Saxony. He died on February 13, 1883 in Venice. As an artist, intellectual, author, and cultural force, Wagner has left an immense metapolitical legacy, which is being evaluated and appropriated in the North American New Right’s Wagner Bicentennial Symposium, which will continue through the end of May with articles by Collin Cleary, Christopher Pankhurst, and others. The best articles will be published later this year in a volume called Our Wagner.
