refrain note:

olympia also comes with poetic (dis)comfort
about theme restrictions for cultural events:

"the artist shall at all times refrain from
making any negative or derogatory remarks.."

more about that, here: "from refrain to decline"

Olympic discomfort almost jumps off the screen! The image cropping and color contrasts so emphatically underscore the message of the words, and vice versa. Altogether, it is an inverse of the usual media coverage. Exceptional!
