OH MY GOD THIS SKULL HAS BOOBS IN IT SHIELD YOUR INNOCENT EYES EVERYBODY.
ArtInfo reports that the blue-chip Saatchi Gallery has been censored by Facebook when the Salvador Dalí x Philippe Halsman’s 1951 classic Voluptas Mors was removed for being “offensive” because OH MY GOD BOOBS BOOBS AND BUTTS IN ART THIS IS TERRIBLE.
“We never post anything that is remotely offensive — unless you think that Michelangelo’s ‘David’ is off limits, or Ingres’s ‘la Grande Odalisque,’ or now, apparently, the work of Salvador Dali,” Saatchi gallery director Rebbeca Wilson explains. “This is not the first time Facebook has removed works we have posted. They have also threatened to close down our account if we post further ‘offensive’ images.”
