ASMR - Egyptomania


The French Whisperer ASMR
Published 8 years ago

Dear friends,
in this video I talk about egyptomania, from its start in the first years of the XIXth century after Napoleon's Egyptian Campaign to present day. Egyptomania (or the passion for Ancient Egypt) remains a reality today as an aspect of popular culture (in movies, novels, commercials, the leisure industry...); it also had an influence on decorative arts and architecture. I try to explain how and why this appeared, and how Ancient Egypt occupies a special place in the construction of national identities, especially in the USA.
