Is It OK To Post Nude Artwork on Social Media?

Recently, an association of museums in Vienna, Austria made an OnlyFans account to post nude artworks after the social media accounts of the city's museums were suspended for sharing such content. In July 2021, the TikTok account of the Albertina Museum in Vienna was banned for posting pictures of Japanese artist Nobuyoshi Araki's work that showed covered breasts. In response to social platforms' treatment of nude artwork, the Vienna Tourism Board showed its disapproval towards the blacklisting of such a type of art on social media.
