Czech Artist David Cerny with a great piece for the European Union

yesterday was this interesting article in the German Spiegel (in English),1518,601209,00.html

about the Czech Artist David Cerny, who invented a fake group of
artists and applied for a project of the European Union and realized
the project, making a pop critic to the Countries of the EU...

The EU rented the art work but now the mass media tries to
pull it down and label it as fraud...

Interesting and smart concept anyway, the artists also developed for each
European (fake) artist a personal website...

See the photo series as well.

and here is a video about the work on

I think "Entropa" is a great piece and the EU can be happy to have it.
