Group sex with Angela Merkel


The German town of Bodman-Ludwigshafen in the far south of Germany isn't exactly a hot tourist attraction. But lately it has been a magnet for tourists armed with cameras and camcorders. The sudden fame is due to a controversial tryptich at the center of town - a work by the German sculpture, Peter Lenk.

The sculpture is called "group-sex relief" and features prominent politicians and corporate players in various states of undress and completely nude. One panel stars German Chancellor Angela Merkel and former Chancellor Gerhard Schröder laughing and grabbing each others private parts.

In a ‘Wprost’ weekly (on 21 of Sept) they ask; where are the boundaries of satire and the freedom of the artistic statement?
‘There are no boundaries – German politics said unanimously.’
Meanwhile, not so far from Germany, polish art critics are indignant with The Krasnals drawings.
What a difference just a border makes…
