Homo-erotic Jesus causes artistic row

by Editorial Staff in General , 12 juni 2008


An exhibition of the 80-year old artist Alfred Hrdlicka of homoerotic paintings of Jesus and the apostles in Vienna has upset religious people in Austria and the rest of the world. The artist is exhibiting his work in the museum of the Roman Catholic Stephan’s Cathedral in Vienna, of all places, and with the approval of Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn.

The church removed a depiction of a gay orgy of the apostles but criticism is not letting off. Museum director Bernhard Boehler defends the exhibition: “I don’t see anything blasphemous. People can interpret the works any way they want.” There’s also a painting of Jesus at the cross with a soldier both hitting Christ as well as groping him in the crotch. The director states that it’s the nature of art to provoke debates.
