The other night I chanced upon a documentary called The Desert of Forbidden Art and I have not been able to get it out of my head....which isn't such a bad thing. The film is about a museum in Uzbekistan created by one Igor Savitsky who dedicated his life to collecting art by artists who refused to work in the strict Social-realism style of the Stalinist-era. Artists who were often imprisoned, sent to labor camps or institutionalized for creating art that was deemed abstract, degenerate, decadent and/or avant-garde.... a truly incredible film that makes this abstract, degenerate and decadent Wandering Eye grateful to be living here and now.
