Whitechapel Art Gallery in London scraps art, fearing protests

The director of the Whitechapel Art Gallery decided to remove works by surrealist artist Hans Bellmer from an exhibition the day before it was due to open, one of the museum's curators, Agnes de la Beaumelle, told Reuters.

"The motive was simply to not shock the population of the Whitechapel neighbourhood, which is partly Muslim," she said.

[...]

Beaumelle said the exhibition had already been to Paris and Munich without provoking any protests and Bellmer, who died in 1975, is well-known in the art world, which made the decision by gallery director Iwona Blazwick all the more surprising to her.

Bellmer's work includes dolls of naked young girls.

[...]

The gallery may also have removed some art depicting young girls because it was worried about the reaction of anti-paedophile groups, Beaumelle added.

Ah yes... the phear grows and ppl resort to stupid acts to help mollify those that refuse to be so.

When will we move away from the PC world that does more harm than good?
