SHOULD INTELLIGENT ART BE FORBIDDEN?

Posted in Art, Debate by stylecouch on March 13, 2011

Art can be emotional, beautiful, provocating, strange, thoughtful etc. If I should describe Danish Nadia Plesner’s art with one word I would say: INTELLIGENT! Drawing attention to the insignificant content in our news stream such as advertising, reality programs, consume and meaningless information about Paris Hilton’s jail trip, Nadia has created a painting with the contrast of a Louis Vuitton bag and the catastrophe area Darfur. The piece called Dafurnica has created a worldwide public debate, however she is now fined by 5000 EUR for each day she is showing the painting!!! Where is the artistic freedom? Where is the freedom of speech?
