TALLAHASSEE

CLASSICAL SCHOOL

FLORIDA

Should Michelangelo’s masterpiece be destroyed? Should it be put in a warehouse, or covered with black plastic with hundreds of other artworks?

The Headline:

Italian Renaissance artist Michelangelo sculpted David from marble (1504), showing the statue in full nudity. In Florida (USA) Tallahassee Classical School's principal resigns her position after parents complained when sixth-grade students were shown a photo of Michelangelo's David during an art history class.

The parents considered the sculpture “pornographic”, and said that their children were “exposed” to such scandalous art without a permission. It is absurd, but apparently not in Florida.

Ms Hope Carrasquilla offered her resignation to the Tallahassee Classical School's board after parents alleged the images of one of the most famous and celebrated statues in the world were "pornographic" and "unsuitable" for the school.

"It saddens me that my time here had to end this way," Carrasquilla told local paper Tallahassee Democrat.

School board chair Barney Bishop told CBS News Saturday that Ms Carrasquilla was asked to resign over "a number of other issues,'' and “the latest incident was just the culmination.

 

In addition, the school issued an official statement: "We will follow our policy and notify our parents in advance so they can make their own decision if it is age appropriate for their child."

What? So written notification is required to look at art? Do parents decide now what to teach in schools? Do political parties always have to interfere? (In July 2022, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed into law, the Parental Rights in Education Bill. to give parents more control over what their children can learn at school.)

Bishop made another hilarious comment: “We don’t have any problem showing ‘David', but showing the entire statue might not be appropriate.” “You don’t have to show the whole statue!" He added "Maybe we only show the head. You can show the hands, the arms, the muscles, the beautiful work Michelangelo did in marble, without showing the whole ‘thing’.

SILENT NEWS

RIOTS AND BINS

PARIS

People in France were violently protesting President Macron's to push through a rise in the pension age from 62 to 64. Mr Macron was forcing through a rise in the retirement age without a parliamentary vote.

The Senate recently passed the legislation, and it was due to go to the National Assembly vote. Instead, Mr Macron used an Emergency Presidential Decree to allow the legislation without a vote.

In addition, more than 7,000 tonnes of rotting-smelling rubbish and waste continued to pile up in Paris, blocking doorways and pavements, as refuse bin collectors extended their nine-day strike for at least another five days in protest at Emmanuel Macron’s plan to increase the retirement age.

The first use of the slogan "Woman, Life, Freedom" goes back to a series of protests sparked by the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, in September 2022, who was arrested for breaking hijab laws. It was first chanted at Amini's funeral in Saqqez, then in the capital of Kurdistan. Following the Iranian protests, many cities throughout the world stepped up for the cause.

The subject is so serious crucial that we shall be continuing the article with direct talks with Iranian women from all around the word: photographer, activist Shirin Neshat, founder of Eye of a Collector art fair Nazy Vassegh, photographer Maryam Eisler, light designer at Studio Waldemeyer Nazanin Farahbod, with one exception, commercial and marketing director at Aeffe Group/Moschino Sadegh Dolatshahi.

Why women cut their hair to support protesters in Iran?

USA

For thousands of years, we humans have lived inside the dreams of other humans. We have worshiped Gods, pursued ideals of beauty and dedicated our lives to causes that originated in the imagination of some prophets, poets and politicians. 

 

By 2028, the U.S. presidential race might no longer be run by humans. Humans often don’t have direct access to reality.

 

We are investigating the subject for our next article.
