Statement
The Taskforce is a satirical representation of agents of censorship. Art has been a powerful propaganda tool for many centuries. The removal of art has also been a powerful way for various interests to assert themselves and squash dissent and varying opinions on their rule. For instance, Hitler instigated infamous book burnings. He censored, banned and held exhibitions of Degenerative Art, which he considered most modern art of his age. Likewise, despite worldwide protest the Buddha statues of Bamiyan province, Afghanistan were destroyed by the Taliban in 2001 as they were considered idols.
