Nerdrum is no Wei Wei…

Artist Odd Nerdrum claims to be the Ai WeiWei of Europe… what a joke.. Nerdrum was jailed after a court case (which he lost) for not claiming all the money he made from selling his works in the US. Ai Wei Wei, had no court date, did not get to have lawyer present during questioning, and was not allowed to go on national TV and talk about it while in Jail… also unlike Wei Wei, Nerdrum’s conviction, sentence and punishment was announced for the public to hear, and explained why they did what they did.. Now does that mean that the court was right? No, but they did not hide it, he got a court date, and an appeal, two things Wei Wei never got…
