from "UN conceals Picasso’s “Guernica” for Powell’s presentation" By David Walsh, February 8, 2003

"In an act with extraordinary historical resonance, United Nations officials covered up a tapestry reproduction of Pablo Picasso’s anti-war mural “Guernica” during US Secretary of State Colin Powell’s February 5 presentation of the American case for war against Iraq.

Picasso’s painting commemorates a small Basque village bombed by German forces in April 1937 during the Spanish Civil War. The painter, in desolate black, white and grey, depicts a nightmarish scene of men, women, children and animals under bombardment. The twisted, writhing forms include images of a screaming mother holding a dead child, a corpse with wide-open eyes and a gored horse. Art historian Herbert Read described the work as “a cry of outrage and horror amplified by a great genius.”

The reproduction has hung outside the Security Council chamber at UN headquarters in New York since its donation by the estate of Nelson A. Rockefeller in 1985. As the council gathered to hear Powell on Wednesday, workers placed a blue curtain and flags of the council’s member countries in front of the tapestry.

UN officials claimed that the cover-up was simply a matter of creating a more effective backdrop for the television cameras. “When we do have large crowds we put the flags up and the UN logo in front of the tapestry,” asserted Stephane Dujarric. New York Newsday, however, reported that “Diplomats at the United Nations, speaking on condition they not be named, have been quoted in recent days telling journalists that they believe the United States leaned on UN officials to cover the tapestry, rather than have it in the background while Powell or other US diplomats argued for war on Iraq."


U.N. hides Picasso's anti-war masterpiece for Colin Powell's call to arms





For me before class...

Julien: 10 En La Plaza Lavapies
10:30 Solar
11 Buy Paper, tape and supplies.

Juan: 1 en La Plaza Lavapies to head to calle de la huerta del bayo 8


Tila and Laura, can you please give an update on what the theater says? Because to hang a large one there will be awesome. Muchas Gracias!

And who is heading up the works in progress class exhibition?

Tomorrow can we plan out who can do the actual "papering" of the photographs on Saturday? Do you guys have any ideas other than the spots I showed you guys today? Can people come up with some suggestions for the streets with very few exhibition spots? And people must be asked if their space can be used, so if you see a good place stop and ask some one there.

Can someone please make a comprehensive list of everything that has to get done? Tomorrow we should have the schedule for the rest of the class locked down. This is going to be awesome.

Para mí, antes de la clase ...

Julien: 10 en la Plaza de Lavapiés
10:30 Solar
11 Compra la cinta y suministros.

Juan: 1 en la Plaza de Lavapiés a la cabeza a la calle de la Huerta del Bayo 8


Tila y Laura, ¿podría dar una actualización sobre lo que el teatro lo dice? Debido a colgar una grande habrá impresionante. Muchas gracias!

Y que está al frente de las obras en la exposición progreso de la clase?

Mañana podemos planificar que puede hacer el actual "empapelado" de las fotografías el sábado? ¿Ustedes tienen alguna otra idea de los puntos que ustedes demostraron hoy en día? ¿La gente puede venir para arriba con algunas sugerencias para la calle con muy pocos puntos de exposición? Y la gente se le preguntó si su espacio puede ser utilizado, así que si usted ve un buen lugar donde parar y preguntar a alguien allí.

¿Puede alguien hacer una lista exhaustiva de todo lo que tiene que hacer? Mañana debemos tener el calendario para el resto de la clase bloqueada. Esto va a ser impresionante.

I know the above doesn't make much sense because it's from Google translate.
