Blood Protest

Michael Jackson and BubblesIt was reported that a man recently sprayed his own blood at a sculpture of Michael Jackson, that was part of a Berlin exhibit of artworks belonging to the heir of a Nazi-era arms supplier.

The man, Hungarian-born performance artist Istvan Kantor, managed to miss the statue; and instead splattered the wall behind it, at the show of Friedrich Christian Flick's modern-art collection in the Hamburger Bahnhof museum.

His target was the ugly (in my view) gold coloured statue of Jackson, and his pet monkey Bubbles, by American sculptor Paul McCarthy.

Kantor was apparently protesting about the loss of independence in art.
