Few days earlier, a controversy ensued when Qatar was left off a map of the Gulf in Louvre Abu Dhabi.
Claims were made that an investigation into the matter has been launched by the Louvre Paris. However the museum has denied all such claims of an ongoing investigation in Qatar map row.
Chairman of Qatar’s National Human Rights Committee, Ali bin Samikh Al-Marri claimed officials from the Paris museum’s management were investigating the omission at the Louvre Abu Dhabi because they were concerned about the “political exploitation” of art and culture and potential damage to the integrity of the Louvre.
However a spokesman from the museum did reveal that Marri visited the museum and talked about the matter but no official inquiry has been launched. Furthermore, the world famous museum in Paris, did send out an official statement saying,: “The Musee du Louvre formally denies having opened an investigation. The question of a map in the Louvre Abu Dhabi children’s museum, on which Qatar did not appear was discussed. During this meeting, representatives of the Louvre reiterated the fact this was a simple technical incident, attributable to a subcontractor who worked in urgency, only a few days before the opening. It was an involuntary negligence and in no way intentional.
“The Louvre also reminded its Qatari interlocutors that this was the only map, among numerous others on display at the Louvre Abu Dhabi, on which Qatar did not appear.”
“Working closely with the Louvre Abu Dhabi teams, the map was changed immediately, 15 days ago, as soon as the incident was discovered.”
