Review of Singapore Art

You review of the Singapore art scene is disgusting. The implicit assumption is that well there is censorship, but that is okay. Because a lot of countries have some censorship. The front page of the Straight Times reads like Pravda from the early 80’s. Does Tyler Brule need to have cocktails with the elite in Singapore to not take a stand on this? Or does Monocle buy into bull that Asians are not really ready for democracy and a free press.
