"A Series Of Staged and Digitally Manipulated Photographic Images", Indeed!
Art Exhibition On Torture 'Opens Abu Ghraib Wounds'
An art exhibition entitled "Torture" set to open next week in San Francisco will "open Abu Ghraib wounds," promises a press release obtained by RAW STORY.
"Security firmly in place, Clinton Fein's latest exhibition, Torture, scheduled to open at Toomey Tourell Gallery in San Francisco on January 4, 2007, is a shocking and defiant exploration of America's approach to torture under the Bush administration," the press release states.
The exhibition consists of "a series of staged and digitally manipulated photographic images" which "recreate infamous torture scenes from Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, transforming diffuse, muted and low-resolution images into large-scale, vivid, powerful and frightening reproductions."
Artist Fein was born in South Africa, and according to his blog, he is "closely identified with his controversial web site, Annoy.com and his notable Supreme Court victory against Janet Reno, Attorney General of the United States, challenging the constitutionality of the Communications Decency Act in 1997, where Fein's right to disseminate his art was upheld in a landmark victory for First Amendment rights."
This is nothing but Photoshopped, imaginary bullshit--meant to unfairly slander President Bush, and this entire country! It's not even the truth; it's certainly not accurate, unbiased reproduction. You don't have to look very far to know who did THIS disgrace--and how they'll use it! Who KNOWS how this will hurt our image overseas--AND IT'S NOT THE TRUTH, AND THESE PEOPLE WERE NOT THERE!
