The last supper
This is one of the images in that was displayed in Belgrade, Serbia, called Ecce Homo, featuring the work of the Swedish artist Elisabeth Ohlson Wallin. The images are challenging to accepted Christian concepts but hardly OTT blasphemous.
But they caused quite a stir in the Balkan capital as written this article Blasphemous’ display enrages thousands in Belgrade. According to this article the reaction was large and nasty.
Around two thousand policemen were present to avoid violence breaking out, as thousands took to the streets to protest
The city had to cancel the gay pride parade fearing there won’t be enough policemen to keep order in the city
This is the artist who caused all the controversy
Personally I think that these religious nutters need to grow up. Are these images really anything more than one persons opinionated take on the subject of Christianity? I for one do not want to live in in a world where something so harmless causes such reactions and the thought that this is happening in Europe is sickening. I cannot say that I like the type of images exhibited but that just means that I would not go to the gallery. There are more important things to protest about.
