Here’s an example of degenerate Western art: A toy kit that allows a child to nail Jesus to the cross.
What’s wrong with artists today?
Crucify Jesus by Yourself!” Many people will be surprised as weird as they crucify a Jesus-self-speelkit see in the shops. Presenter Filemon Wesselink pays However it with a different intention.
Wesselink joins Twente Biennale art festival which starts today and made before the striking work of art.
“The ‘trademark’ of the Christians is the crucifix and the image of the body of Jesus on the cross. I am Christian upbringing and I have seen this my entire childhood,” Wesselink said the inspiration for the package.
“During a trip to Israel, I was often confronted with this. At the same time there were many tourist market stalls selling toys were sold. Weapons were held by” action figures “but the brutal image of Jesus on the cross was nowhere to be seen.”
“May this of the Christians?”
According to the presenter is going to set the intention that people ask the toy. “On which side you stand when you nail Jesus to the cross? Without crucifixion was Christianity, after all, not been so great. Can this of Christians? And when they approve this what does that say about the state of Christianity? Do people feel guilty when it buys and completes the crucifixion? and if you feel guilty, then it is not necessarily a believer? ”
It is no coincidence that Wesselink makes this artwork for a festival in Enschede. The town where the Twente Biennale takes place was also the setting for the TV show The Passion. “It was the ‘Disney fisering’ of Christianity kicks off,” says Wesselink. “This is the next step in the desecration of Christianity.”
The festival Twente Biennale begins Thursday and runs until June 7th. The art of Filemon Wesselink is featured this weekend in the Balengebouw.
