Europe: Making Itself into the New Afghanistan?

“Persepolis” by the Italian artist Luca Pignatelli

Maastricht, in the Netherlands, is the picturesque city that gave its name to the famous treaty signed in 1992 by the twelve nations of the European Community at the time, and which paved the way for the foundation of today’s European Union and the single currency, the euro.

Maastricht, however, is also the home of “Tefaf”, the most important art and antiques fair in the world. The art work “Persepolis” by the Italian artist Luca Pignatelli was already scheduled when the commission ordered it removed. The work, built in 2016, combined a Persian Islamic rug and a female head. “We are all humbled and speechless”, Pignatelli declared, pointing out that his work had initially aroused the enthusiasm of the commission. The fair’s explanation was that Pignatelli’s work was “provocative“.

The officials of fair presumably did not want to offend Islam and possible Muslim buyers with Pignatelli’s combination of the mat (used by Muslims for prayer) with the woman’s face.

    I thought that the essence of true art was being provocative?

      Only when”true art” provokes non muslims.

      Uh uh. Prior to the twentieth century art was made by people with talent and was pleasant and interesting to look at. Like all other institutions and cultural endeavors, the art world was infiltrated and co-opted by socialists in order to debauche it as part of their war against civilization.

    Don’t worry – soon the Muslims will set it all on fire.

    I think Europe is turning into Egypt!
    Egypt used to be the greatest civilization on Earth, it was in decline, run over by the Muslim hoardes and now we have an Islamic shithole with 10 million Christians and 70 million Muslims. What’s happening in Europe is similar to what happened to Egypt.

    Very soon, they will regret not voting for Geert.

      From what I’ve read even if they voted for Geert the other parties would refuse to work with him.
