Independent News and Views Putting People Over Profit
This huge outdoor art poster in Poland, part of an Italian artist's
"Politically Incorrect" series, has caused an uproar, which was maybe the point.
Artist Max Papeschi says the image and one of Ronald McDonald toting a
machine gun in Iraq are commentaries on "the horrors" of American life that represent "a
collective nightmare." Others say it's provocation for provocation's
sake, and a profoundly offensive one in a country where millions died at
the hands of the Nazis. Either way, we wonder: Is it art?
