Asian Art Biennale: Shame !

Simply incredible that an art biennale in the 21st century does not accept photography ! http://www.bangladeshbiennale.org/. I believe all artists (photographers and non-photographers) should boycott this cultural apartheid. The fossils who organise this event, clearly lack the credibility to be in the decision making process in such an important event, and need to be exposed as such. This is a public event using public funds and cannot be used for the selective benefit of some blinkered artists who have no understanding of contemporary art practice. It is time to resist. Please circulate this as widely as you can and mobilise resistance.
