Phil forwarded this news:

IMHO its good news. Things like that can be seen from two points of view.

Dear Phil, dont get me wrong, I dont like Haider, but I just think its not
worth this kind of "intervention". If you could read german, I would try to
get an article, maybe worth to be translated, that appeared in "Leviathan",
maybe you can get this social science magazin in your library, it should be
there, very funny reading, very enlighting.

And this was about pictures. Nazi art. Well, you can think its worth to be
burned, but I am interested in what kind of a world my father and his
generation lived. I think this should be or is a *left* interest. I am
interested in reality.

Best wishes,

Heiko

Another try:

Maybe it would have been better to let the "art" in place, without the
oak. Better than putting things into a museum. To remind the politicians
what once was and how it ended etcppp.

Anyway: I have a friend in austria, who was once in the center of this
Bruno Kreiski subsidies for the arts system. The main idea was, that they
were fearing, that austrian artists would go to germany, where they might
have better chances. So the crazier your art was, the better your chances
to get subsidies. This seems to have changed a *little* bit.
