Facebook finds Nelly’s Mona Paeva obscene

Posted on

The social media platform banned the historic image posted by Melbourne’s Hellenic Museum

It’s not the first time Facebook has come under fire for banning emblematic pieces of art from its feed for being obscene, too suggestive or offensive-in a nutshell: inappropriate.

The latest major incident involved an iconic photo of Nelly’s depicting an avant-garde black and white image of famous at the time ballerina Mona Paeva on the Parthenon. The photo is part of a controversial series taken in 1928, and were published in the French magazine ‘Illustration de Paris’, that changed people’s perceptions on Neoromanticism, art-nudes and photography altogether.
