There was an ad in the subway today for the latest exhibit at the Museum of Sex, entitled Hard Core: A Century and a Half of Obscene Imagery.
It’s not that difficult for me to imagine that such pictures exist, especially at this particular venue. But for the museum itself to use the word obscene to describe the art it displays seems like an argument against its own credibility.
Then again, you do have to pay to get in…
So I guess the marketing department knows what they are doing.
