Is Qatar’s “Cultural Village” an artistic battleground?

Is Qatar’s arts and performance community – the Katara Cultural Village – a neutral ground for the arts in the 21st century as the country’s cultural stewards claim? Or is it just a sham?

This presents a much more critical view than I was able to provide for the B’qatar version.)
