This is just really, really disappointing, Iran.
Russia is using the opportunity of global conflict to become more hardcore, putting the clamp down on faggots and women. China pretty much already did that, but they’re at least trying to force women into becoming breeders.
Iran? They’re showing this sickening Jew fake art.
Some of the world’s most prized works of contemporary Western art have been unveiled for the first time in decades — in Tehran.
Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, a hard-line cleric, rails against the influence of the West. Authorities have lashed out at “deviant” artists for “attacking Iran’s revolutionary culture.” And the Islamic Republic has plunged further into confrontation with the United States and Europe as it rapidly accelerates its nuclear program and diplomatic efforts stall.
I said from the beginning, they should have elected this guy’s cousin, Ebrahim Racist.
I understand that the difference is subtle, but it would have made all of the difference in the world when it comes to something like an abstract art display.
But contradictions abound in the Iranian capital, where thousands of well-heeled men and hijab-clad women marveled at 19th- and 20th-century American and European minimalist and conceptual masterpieces on display this summer for the first time at the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art.
The government of Iran’s Western-backed shah, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, and his wife, the former Empress Farah Pahlavi, built the museum and acquired the multibillion-dollar collection in the late 1970s, when oil boomed and Western economies stagnated. Upon opening, it showed sensational works by Pablo Picasso, Mark Rothko, Claude Monet, Jackson Pollock and other heavyweights, enhancing Iran’s cultural standing on the world stage.
But just two years later, in 1979, Shiite clerics ousted the shah and packed away the art in the museum’s vault. Some paintings — cubist, surrealist, impressionist, even pop art — sat untouched for decades to avoid offending Islamic values and catering to Western sensibilities.
I’m so sick of this language.
It’s not merely Islamic values that this fake art offends, it is basic human nature it offends. And it offends normal “Western sensibilities.” No one likes this other than Jews and pretentious people with low IQs who have never taken an IQ test and don’t know how dumb they are.
Abstract art isn’t even primarily a way to destroy beauty. You could say that abstract architecture is primarily that, but the art is first and foremost a Jewish money laundering scam that has the side benefit of destroying beauty.
It is literally a scam.
But during a thaw in Iran’s hard-line politics, the art started to resurface. While Andy Warhol’s paintings of the Pahlavis and some choice nudes are still hidden in the basement, much of the Warhol collection has been brought out to great fanfare as Iran’s cultural restrictions have eased.
The ongoing exhibit on minimalism, featuring 34 Western artists, has captured particular attention. Over 17,000 people have made the trip since it opened, the museum said — nearly double the footfall of past shows.
Curator Behrang Samadzadegan credits a recent renewed interest in conceptual art, which first shocked audiences in the 1960s by drawing on political themes and taking art out of traditional galleries and into the wider world.
The museum’s spokesperson, Hasan Noferesti, said the size of the crowds coming to the exhibition, which lasts until mid-September, shows the thrill of experiencing long-hidden modern masterpieces.
Why is there a thaw in hardline politics? Seriously, I haven’t been following this.
Was it because those sluts took their hijabs off a few years ago? I thought they got hit with the water cannons and things went back to normal?
Anyway – you see how this stuff is all linked together. “Oh, hard Islam is thawing – let’s bring out that fake Jew art and get a bunch of dumb women to come look at it and think they’re smart.”
Iranians should have voted for Ebrahim Racist.
