'Erotic video' displayed in Greek mosque angers Turk society
by Yorgo Kirbaki
A video work that was put on display at a former mosque at the Thessaloniki Biennial has caused controversy among Turks due to allegations of eroticism, resulting in its removal from the exhibition.
Although the Alaca İmare Mosque is now closed to worship, local Muslims from the Eastern Macedonia-Thracian Muslims Education and Culture Association complained after the video from French artist Ange Leccia, titled "Nimfea," was projected on the wall of the mosque, depicting a seemingly naked woman down to her chest.
