OnlyFans has been in the news lots, growing fame or infamy as a spot for creators to share content material, women to sell express photos and videos, and now, a spot to see historic works of art? After falling sufferer to Facebook and Instagram’s censorship algorithms, the Vienna Tourist Board has moved to OnlyFans to display great works of art.
Joining over 2 million other creators, the tourist board opened an OnlyFans account where they will safely share a few of the paintings of Vienna that some extra puritanical folks might discover offensive for exhibiting nudity. The works of art had beforehand been shared with the world on social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram and TikTok, however work and sculptures that depicted even partial nudity had been flagged and removed.
Some social media accounts had been even closed and banned for posting the art work. A spokesperson for the museum questioned the virtue of the algorithmic censorship blocking cultural legacy.
“It might lead to some unconscious self-censorship, when artists begin to make art differently or collectors assemble their collections in a special way as a end result of they know a software as strong as social media would not present or promote sure kinds of art. This is sort of scary.”
