Making a martyr

Kunstanmeldelse AFK – «Making a martyr»: Misforstått martyrdiskusjon

Påskemorgen slukker sorgen, lyder sangen. Men det var ingen sorgbearbeidelse vi var vitne til 2. påskedag. Da monterte gatekunstneren AFK et maleri av en naken og korsfestet Sylvi Listhaug i en hjørnenisje i Bergen sentrum, like bak Grieghallen.

Bra skrevet, her treffer du spikeren på hodet! Håper selv at AFK neste gang klarer å spisse budskapet sitt enda tydeligere, og om mulig velger en annen sak som trenger belysning. Sylvi er vel en av de få nordmennene som det er sosialt akseptabelt å mislike, og får allerede stor oppmerksomhet i media. Det er flere som burde fått søkelyset rettet mot seg, for eksempel politikere som misbruker maktposisjonen sin uten at det får konsekvenser.

Li’s image is being pinned online alongside the statement he was forced to sign, and censors are taking it down as fast as it goes up. The government has a tough decision. Does it embrace the image of a man official decisions  helped kill, hoping to pin the blame entirely on the failures of the Wuhan authorities? Or does it keep removing  his name and image, silencing the stories of another potential martyr?

A few elaborately dressed members of the D.C. chapter of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, which describes itself as a “leading-edge order of Queer nuns” (motto: “Go forth and sin some more!”) are among the attendees. “We came out today to be a visual reminder to our community that, yes, something horrible happened, but look at all the good that can come of it,” one “sister” says. “It’s a momentous occasion.”
