The Arts: Helena

" was reported in the news that the director of the Trapholt Modern Art Museum in Denmark had been prosecuted for cruelty to animals.  The prosecution related to the exhibition of an artwork by Marco Evaristti, which featured a live goldfish swimming in water in a blender. Visitors to the Museum were invited to switch the blender on and liquefy the fish.  The artist said he wanted to force people to "do battle with their conscience" and this, presumably, was the point of the artwork.  The Museum Director, Peter Meyer, vigorously defended his case on the basis of artistic freedom.  Ultimately, he was successful but on the basis that the fish was killed instantly and therefore it was not cruel."
