China Censors Andy Warhol Art Exhibition
The 25th anniversary of Andy Warhol's death inspired the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh to initiate a traveling exhibition presenting 300 art pieces. Currently, all of them can be seen in Hongkong. But soon, China is to be visited with Shanghai and Peking as locations.
However, 10 pictures will be omitted from the exhibition in these two cities. They show the former president of the Republic of China, Mao Zedong. Even though the pictures can hardly be connected to a controversy of any sort, the Chinese government deemed them as politically delicaty. It shouldn't be expected that the reason behind this is some sort of tentative attempt to show a bit of shame about the bad sides of the dictator. It's more likely to assume that the government wanted to avoid any kind of arising discussions about Mao himself. But hey, canned soup can also ignite some conversation.
