Photographs of esteemed Sydney artist Bill Henson
have been removed by police from the Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery
, and the debate over art vs pornography vs pedophilia heats up in Sydney this week.
Some of the debate is quite measured and intelligent
while other sides are descending to unruly levels
Even Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has something to say
about the whole debacle.
Unfortunately the offending artworks have been removed from both the gallery's website and walls, so we can not judge for ourselves. Once again we'll have to leave it up to the courts to decide.
