Artwork by artist Ellen Vroegh have been removed from the municipality building where they had been displayed, after several Muslim men complained about the abstract paintings of half-naked women in the paintings. Vroegh commented that she was showed, and completely puzzled that the municipality removed her artwork because a few people had objections to them. She also responded that the paintings are not pornography, but abstract imagination, figurative art, where genitals are not even shown. A municipality spokesperson said: “We respect voices from society, regardless of which religious convictions people take offense to these naked women.”
