The Gemeentemuseum den Haag
1  2  3  4  5  

by Abigail Esman

The past two weeks have witnessed a firestorm in the Netherlands, where late in November 2007 Wim van Krimpen, director of the Hague Gemeentemuseum, ordered two photos and a film by Iranian-born artist Sooreh Hera removed from an upcoming exhibition. It may well mark the first time that a Dutch museum, as opposed to a government body, has censored an artwork from its own walls.
