At the heart of the controversy for its conspiratorial and anti-Semitic aspect, the fresco created by graffiti artist Lekto on an electrical transformer in Avignon (Vaucluse) began to be covered in white, this Friday, June 24, by order of the prefecture. A cartoon that made the buzz. A fresco by graffiti artist Lekto depicting Jacques Attali as a puppeteer with Emmanuel Macron as a puppet, erected on an electrical transformer at the northeast entrance to Avignon, has sparked a wave of indignation on social networks since Thursday. Should this fresco in Avignon be erased? pic.twitter.com/KJF69CLOrE — And it continues… (@zoomabus) June 24, 2022 Deemed anti-Semitic and conspiratorial, the latter went as far as the American Jewish Committee, which arrested Cécile Helle, the mayor (PS) of Avignon, on Twitter from Thursday. Can the town hall of #Avignon tell us who authorized or ordered this anti-Semitic fresco and why it is still there? #anti-Semitism @CecileHelle https://t.co/DOEWULMwUP — AJC Paris (@AJC_Paris) June 23, 2022 “Can Avignon City Hall tell us who authorized or commissioned this anti-Semitic fresco and why is it still there?”, denounced the organization. However, this Thursday, the latter and the agglomeration community of Greater Avignon, owner of the targeted building, said “want to respect freedom of expression”, believing that “everyone can interpret the image as he wants since he does not there are no words on this wall”, according to France Bleu Vaucluse. This same source indicated that the last word returned to the prefect this Friday, demanding that the paint be immediately covered. Multiple reactions of indignation Several associations and public figures have called for the withdrawal of the cartoon because of the indignation aroused by the anti-Semitic nature of the work. That one could only wonder if this fresco of Avignon was anti-Semitic or not says a lot about the intellectual decadence of our time and about the trivialization of abjection. https://t.co/XVY80EFd1g — Eric Naulleau (@EricNaulleau) June 24, 2022 This was particularly the case for Eric Naulleau, who protested the situation on social networks. “That we could only wonder if this Avignon fresco was anti-Semitic or not says a lot about the intellectual decadence of our time and the trivialization of abjection,” Eric Naulleau tweeted. You really have to never have opened a history book not to see how this image takes up all the codes of anti-Semitic propaganda and fascist iconography. Refusing to erase it in the name of “freedom of expression” is a scandal @GrandAvignon pic.twitter.com/dUyq27QpBA — Raphael Glucksmann (@rglucks1) June 23, 2022 The justification initially put forward by the municipality in order not to destroy the fresco was not to Raphaël Glucksmann’s taste. “You really have to never have opened a history book not to see how this image takes up all the codes of anti-Semitic propaganda and fascist iconography. Refusing to delete it in the name of “freedom of expression” is a scandal,” said MEP Raphaël Glucksmann on Twitter. The anti-Semitic fresco in Avignon was covered in paint this evening by young people from the city. Proud of themIt will be erased in the rules of the art this Friday by a company mandated by Grand Avignon. Thank you to everyone who got involved. #antisemitism pic.twitter.com/ad1QJLp3os — Amine El-Khatmi (@Aminelkhatmi) June 23, 2022 Before the cleaning of the paint by the city’s cleanliness officers, some locals took the initiative to cover the painting fresco from Thursday evening. A gesture hailed by former community adviser Amine El-Khatmi, who posted a photo of the result of this degradation on Twitter.
