It takes a nation to protect the nation
Artist protesting that there is not a mosque in Venice. The world really has gone mad.
The police in Venice closed an art installation in the form of a functioning mosque on Friday morning, after city officials declared the art project a security hazard and said that the artist who created it, Christoph Büchel, had not obtained proper permits and had violated laws by allowing too many people inside the mosque to worship.
The provocative project, made inside a long unused Catholic church, serves as Iceland’s national pavilion for the 56th Venice Biennale and was intended in part to highlight the absence of a mosque in the historic center of Venice, a city whose art and architecture were deeply influenced by Islamic trade and culture. The issues the installation raised also went to the heart of the debate raging across Europe about Muslim worship and culture as immigration from Islamic countries rises.
Now the question is. Is it an Art Istallation or is it a very sneaky attempt to establish a mosque by by-passing all the formalities such as planning permission etc etc
So here is more info, from the horse,s mouth so to speak, several screen shots from the Islamic Cultural Centre Venice website
Now this does not seem like an inaugration of a work of art.
Now exploring the site we find this
And the address
A google search give us this
Looks like this site is also preparing an invasion of Iceland
Nowhere on the site does it mention anything about it being an art installation,
Looks like Christoph Büchel and the arty farty folk are totally clueless and have been taken for a ride by the muslims
Immigration is war by other means.
