Piet Mondriaan and Islam


This is a Dutch video about works by Piet Mondriaan in daily life.

Yesterday at the railway station.

A group of teenage girls passes, probably from Muslim families. Most of them with uncovered hair. One, however, wears a black headscarf. Another girl wears a headscarf with a colourful pattern, based on a painting by famous twentieth century Dutch painter Piet Mondriaan.

I wonder what Islamophobes who get so hysterical about headscarves, as supposedly ‘medieval’, would say about this. Will they talk about some evil conspiracy between Islam and twentieth century abstract painting, which they probably hate as well for some reason or other?
