Video prompts NZ sex discrimination storm
The banning of men from watching images of Muslim women without veils in an exhibition due to open in New Zealand next month is discrimination, a lawyer says.
The Dowse Art Museum, which is run by the Hutt City Council in Wellington, is hosting the world premiere of an art installation which includes a video by Qatari writer and film-maker Sophia Al-Maria called Cinderazahd: For Your Eyes Only. It features women getting ready for a wedding without wearing hijabs, or veils.
Dowse director Cam McCracken earlier said Al-Maria's work would be off-limits to men in keeping with the artist's wishes.
