“Vienna strips on OnlyFans” (“Vienna strips on OnlyFans”): this is the name of the campaign launched by the Tourist Office of the Austrian capital.

While promoting the works of art that tourists can admire in the city, the aim is to expose the arbitrary censorship of traditional social networks.

The British daily

The Guardian

lists, in an article published on Saturday, the disappointments of several Viennese museums.

Last July, for example, the Albertina Museum saw its TikTok account suspended and was forced to create a new one for showing photographs of the Japanese Nobuyoshi Araki.

On one of the pictures, a feminine breast, however obscured, appeared.

The canvas "Les Amoureux" deemed "potentially pornographic"

Also this year, a video from the Leopold Museum was attacked by Facebook and Instagram because it was considered “potentially pornographic”.

In question: the woman's nipple represented on the canvas

Liebespaar

(

The Lovers

) by Koloman Moser.

Faced with this kind of absurdity, the Vienna Tourist Office has difficulty promoting the current exhibitions.

"Some works of the current temporary exhibition of the Musee Albertina, painted by Amadeo Modigliani, are too explicit" to appear in advertising campaigns, explains to the

Guardian

 Helena Hartlauer, spokesperson for the tourist office.

Benefits for subscribers

Hence the idea of ​​falling back on OnlyFans.

Often dubbed “the Instagram of porn,” this platform is famous for sexually explicit photos and videos posted by creators for paid subscriptions.

The first and first holders of an Austrian adult account subscription will receive a Vienna City Card giving access to preferential rates at the museum ticket office or an entrance ticket to discover one of the works.

"The campaign" Vienna undresses ... "was not set up only to encourage tourists to come, the goal is also to make as many people as possible aware of the criteria of censorship [of social networks] to which contemporary artists are facing, ”adds Helena Hartlauer.

High-Tech

OnlyFans ultimately won't send porn to get dressed

Culture

"With the NFT of" 20 Minutes ", we are between the history and the history of art", according to Frédéric Chambre, director of Piasa
