It is the specter of cheese culture, the jelly-headed amiability of smiley faces, white polyester three-piece suits, and the most recent return of the repressed, Starsky & Hutch, set to a mind-numbing soundtrack of Barry White, Kiss, and “Stairway to Heaven.” Yet the arguably tackiest American decade is also when much of what is termed the postmodern condition began to emerge.

The 1970s have been studied from a range of perspectives. Liberals like Boston University historian Bruce J. Schulman assert that the lessons to be lea rned from the decade ultimately attest to the inalienability of individual rights.

A Moment for the Selk'nam

Subsequently slaughtered to extinction by ranchers, the Selk'nam are remembered primarily for their elaborate male-initiation rituals, or Hain, whereby the young men of the tribe were ushered into adulthood. Here's how the ceremony played out. Adolescent males were beckoned to a dark hut, where they were brutally attacked by vengeful spirits, who were really elder tribesmen body-painted and dressed in supernatural costume.

The Hain, which sometimes lasted months, also involved tests of courage, resourcefulness, resisting temptation and pain, and overcoming fear, as well as instruction for their new adult responsibilities.

Contemporary art museums: Home of the brave

And such is the democracy of the museum that the public will get to enjoy it too, from a generous balcony that wraps right around the building. They won’t have to pay. They won’t even have to look at any art on the way up. “Museums now are places where people come to meet each other and have a conversation and a good time,” says Sir Nicholas Serota, director of the Tate Galleries. “I’m happy about that.” The eating and meeting places have been part of Tate’s appeal ever since this former power station, converted by Herzog and de Meuron, a Swiss firm, opened in 2000.
