What Will Those Crazy Danish Artists Think Of Next?


Man, Danish artists seem really intent on pissing off the rest of the world. With a jihad still very much in effect for all those cartoons of Muhammad, photographer Nina Maria Kleivan has decided to shock in a different direction. As Haaretz reports, “When Kleivan gave birth to Faustina, her second child, serious pelvic joint pain kept her in hospital for two months, then captive at home in a wheelchair for another four months. Bored out her mind and incapable of accessing her studio, she found a canvas in her newborn daughter. She began sewing small costumes using items at hand, dressing her child up as the worst dictators of recent history, and photographing the results. First was Stalin; Hitler was the last.”
