Intolerance: Jordan F1, Bahrain, Princess Cristina, & Dali

Back in 1983... The Spanish "avant-garde" painter and sculptor, Salvadore Dali set up "The Gala-Salvador Dali Foundation" to protect the 'artistic, cultural and intellectual qualities' of his works worldwide. In the same year, Eddie Jordan founded "Formula One Jordan" at Silverstone in Northamptonshire, England. Dali was President of his foundation until his death in 1989. Since then, the foundation has been run by a board of trustees appointed by The Government of Spain and Catalonia (Princess Cristina of Spain has been a life-long trustee since 1998).
Princess Cristina of Spaain, Dali Trustee Eddie Jordan Princess Cristina Eddie Jordan Centenary... "The Gala-Salvador Dali Foundation" is based in Figueres near Barcelona, the town of Dali's birth, and is marking the centenary of Salvador Dali's birth (1904-05-11) with a celebration of his work called "Dali Year 2004". The centrepiece of the centenary celebrations in the Catalan region is a current major exhibition at the Caixa Forum called "Cultura de Masses" and exhibits Dali's adoption of mass culture as a major influence of his works. Cultural Message Campaign... The Kingdom of Bahrain is presently running a "Campaign of Cultural Messages". 'Cultural Emblems' displayed on Jordan's Formula One cars in Bahrain's campaign have included:
Australian Grand Prix: "Dove of Peace" Malaysian Grand Prix: "Racial equality" Bahrain Grand Prix: "Campaign for nuclear disarmament" San Marino Grand Prix: "Ayrton Senna tribute"
Dali Tribute... The campaign continues at the Spanish Grand Prix this weekend (2004-05-09) with a tribute to Salvadore Dali on the Jordan Ford EJ14 cars.
