Gallery Vandals Destroy Photos New York Times CAROL VOGEL 10/9/07

“A grainy video of four masked vandals running through an art gallery in Sweden, smashing sexually explicit photographs with crowbars and axes to the strain of thundering death-metal music, was posted on YouTube Friday night.

“This was no joke or acting stunt….”


The photographs were part of Andres Serrano’s “A History of Sex.” (Serrano is the artist famous for “Piss Christ,” which has also been attacked. ) View the exhibition photos at Videøparty.
