> I think that any in depth discussion of art is going to have a component of interpretation; especially when images are shown in thumbnail and out of context (there's a familiar PsychoBabble theme). Links to the shows where the images originated from are more likely to include those that may be interpreted as obscene, again, without knowing the context or reasoning of the artist's intentions.
> I find art to be so very interesting. Out of context, it can be really hard for me to grasp, not knowing the artist, or the meaning behind the image; particularly not being anything but a layman in my knowledge.
> This is a chance, however, to be educated. If someone is offended by the larger context, then I agree a trigger warning is appropriate. Otherwise, I think it's fun and an opportunity to work my grey matter to its limits in unfamiliar directions. Also, if someone IS offended by anything about the links or art, I would advise to avoid the thread. This is what I have learned. If you are triggered in particular or find the link upsetting, perhaps it's appropriate to report the post.
> That's my take, anyway.
Who would you report the post to?
