Controversial artist Lars Vilks.

Malmö religious leaders "unfazed" by Vilks exhibit

Representatives from a number of religions in Malmö agreed on Monday not to be provoked by an exhibition opening this summer showing controversial depictions of the Prophet Muhammad by artist Lars Vilks, news agency TT reports.

"They will be speaking to their members about ignoring Vilks incitement. Let him be alone with his paintings," said Björn Lagerbäck, chair of a community council under the city of Malmö.

Vilks says his depictions of Muhammad serve to remove a stigma surrounding criticism of Islam, while critics describe his art as encouraging racism and Islamophobia.
