Legal Cheek: Museums legal threats to Pornhub are an ‘exhibition of hypocrisy’

Legal Cheek: Museums legal threats to Pornhub are an ‘exhibition of hypocrisy’. “As Burcu Günay points out, throughout history museums have progressed from merely exhibiting collections to being centres for observation, learning and questioning. Attempts to restrict access to these culturally important artworks goes against this trend. It also contravenes the values espoused by International Council of Museums (ICOM), where both France and Italy are influential. Although debate has recently become fraught over the extent to which museums should play an active role in society, the ICOM agrees that museums have a core social public function. Accessibility is therefore key to achieving these goals.”
