Frédéric Mitterrand deplores the destruction of Andres Serrano’s two works exhibited at the Yvon Lambert Foundation in Avignon.

An investigation is currently underway to determine the conditions under which this act was carried out. The Minister of Culture and Communication recalls that these works had already been exhibited in various places and at the Yvon Lambert Foundation itself. While acknowledging that one of the two works might shock some audiences, he condemns such an attack on a fundamental principle, the presentation of these works being fully within the scope of the freedom of creation and expression that is enshrined in the law.
