Anti-American Art: Imperialist-style Exorcism?
A bizarre one from the Sinchon museum on US War Crimes in North Korea: looking positively demonic an American army chaplain and doctor conspire to abuse an innocent Korean child, crushing it to the ground in a puddle of gore. The expression of wild-eyed glee shown by the torturers seems to cross the line into racial caricature. This is the first time I've seen Christianity singled out in this kind of propaganda.
