Blood, sweat and tears
Anyone happening to be in Graz in Austria before Oct 26 might want to visit an exhibition called Blut, Schweiß und Tränen: Botschaften des Körpers at the Landesmuseum Joanneum which traces blood, sweat and tears in history, religion, propaganda and art. This includes the history of vampires! Actually, early this year they arranged a talk by Hans-Peter Wiegand on vampires: Von Vampiren und Menschen-Saugern: Geschichte und Hintergründe eines Phänomens.
