Today I write a piece in the Swedish daily Expressen about the neglect by the artworld vis-a-vis Lars Vilks and his Mohammedesque drawings. I argue that the artworld are shielding themselves behind a veil of insecurity – is the media artwork initiated by Vilks but played out by thousands of reporters and Op-Ed writers around the world worth writing and fighting for or not? I believe so. Even if a good essay on his gesamtkunstwerk find that he is not doing a swell job, I still think he deserves a fair hearing.
