Religious Zealots have RETURNED — Want To Purify Art Academies by Racial Segregation and Iconoclasm
In Sweden, a student group called «Brown Island» feels the presence of a majority of middle class, white students is «problematic». Its members are also traumatized by the name of the exhibition space at The Art Academy. As it turns out, the white walls of «The White Sea» are soaked in racism (a lot of white people have been in the room throughout the years).
A «sin of the skin» easily proven by swapping empiricism, reason and rational arguments for emotional and subjective interpretations.
In Denmark, a group lead by a professor threw a cast of a former king in the harbour, protesting past slave trade. Though fired from her job, the professor is supported by art world representatives.
To understand this phenomenon, Jan-Ove Tuv turns to Catherine Nixey´s book «The Darkening Age. The Christian Destruction of The Classical World». What began as «political activism» gradually turned into state politics, and the destruction of culture.
If we do not push back, we are indeed (re)entering a darkening age.
Do you have tips of culture news Tuv should cover?
Or can you recommend sites, media (etc) he should follow to be informed of the culture field?
