Deviant Art gets noticed in the Hague

When people get all riled-up about images, whether or not they be called art or deviant art, it stirs interest. Recently and exhibition about such a subject was shown in the Hague. It showcased the work of Hans Bellmer 1902-1975 and Louise Bourgeois 1911-2010. What was amusing, rewarding and slightly ironic was the welcoming 4 meter x 3 meter portrait of Louise by the photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, who's work also bore the brunt of the deviant (Entartete kunst)accusations in the land of the free and the home of the first parliament. Now, what would Adolf have said about that.
