Le sacré, voilà l'ennemi! (translated as 'The sacred, that is the enemy!') is the title of a special edition of art press 2 (May/June/July 2008, trimestriel No. 9) on the exhibition, Traces du sacré, currently on show at the Centre Pompidou in Paris. This outcry of disgust at the choice of concept of the mega-exhibition expressed through an exploration of the relationship of art to religion, similar to Gauguin's old question on human beings' destiny (Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going?), is an outright demonstration of the depth and width of the nihilism and agnosticism of our time.
