Psycopath In A Diaper

Arguing that "we all have evil within us," Danish artist Nina Maria Kleivan has caused a stir with an exhibit
entitled "Potency" wherein she dressed up her then-infant daughter as
the most evil historical figures of the 20th century, from Stalin to
Pinochet to Saddam Hussein. The daughter of a Norwegian resistance
fighter held in a German prison camp, Kleivan says the show is not
meant as "deliberate provocation" but as an exploration of the meaning
of evil. Most people, she says, only react to the mini-Hitler. But
check out Mussolini.
