ah yes, rich white people fetishising, disfiguring, and stealing from eastern cultures in order to justify and enact their violation is the same as french weirdos doing blurry landscapes, clearly,

the level of contempt i have for the fucking criminals who put this exhibition together cannot be overstated

@garfiald it makes me even more mad that with the ressources they have, they could have made a critical exhibition on the same subject and it could have been good. like. raising awareness for one of the racist undercurrents in our societies

@anarchiv absolutely. worth noting that this exhibition is sponsored by Standard Chartered, formerly Chartered Bank, founded on the colonial opium and cotton trades

@garfiald *crying loudly into the water for the temperacolors*
