Venice Biennale Brouhaha Over Mosque...

Jump to last reply

set up by the Icelandic entry to the bi-annual Venice Biennale - a former church - now privately owned has been converted to a real if temporary mosque - in today's NYTimes an article said the city was thinking of taking steps to shut the display and mosque down.

IMO tolerance should rule along with artistic integrity - the Biennale has traditionally been at the cutting edge of offending folks, like the Vatican and the Pope in past satirical bases entries - I really can't believe the knee-jerk reaction of some.

What do you think?
