FTA;

The sculptor decided on this stunt as he claimed: "I wanted to express the message that you should not destroy art if you do not understand it, there should be an active dialogue about it.

Umm... you exploded a giant penis that people thought was ugly. are we supposed to cry for you know, because you had to blow up your failure?

/ just because everyone thinks your work of art stinks that does not mean that it's really good and no one understands it.
// props on the re-purposing though. i usually toss my failures in the trash bin. you quadrupled your press and got to use explosives.

You maniacs! You blew it up!

From the article:
"The organic remains of the exploded penis will now be buried in the gardens"

My explosions are usually controlled as well.

It was then moved to Bad Blumau to the Blumau thermal spa resort as part of the 'Hundertwasser Reloaded' exhibition.

Julie, I expect more from you. Like a point by point break down of the symbolism of destroying a giant phallic as the decline of masculinity.

But a dick joke is fine too.

You're not an artist just because no one understands you.

"I wanted to express the message that you should not destroy art if you do not understand it, there should be an active dialogue about it."

Well, since you insist, Mr. Weissenberge: why does mommy have a several-ton penis?

/knows what Art is.
//also knows what he likes.

shiat, that was stupid.

Back in the day I used to think that Judy Chicago's The Dinner Party was a little heavy-handed and ridiculous, but at least it's well-crafted and nice to look at. This thing's just moronic.

An insult to Hundertwasser's memory.

Like anything, his stuff probably isn't to everyone's tastes but I think he was brilliant. One of my favorites.

Nah. You name a giant dick statue "Gaia" for a sustainability conference, you blow it up at a spa (a place of renewal), and then you bury the pieces in the Earth.

Got hard, got stoned, blew his load, buried the mess in the womb of Mother Earth, had a bunch of people complain about having to see his dick out in the middle of the town square along the way, spent a lot of his time whining about how they just didn't understand.

Now he's satisfied, and as soon as the mess is cleaned up, they hope he'll just go away.

The spa will probably be happy as long as they get paid, or get publicity for their services and more business out of it, or something.

As long as we don't have a new planet hatch outta there or something, I guess we're all pretty much okay.

What? No controlled explosion video? Meh.

I used to get my penis blown, but then i got married. Now I'm lucky to get a national geographic and a bottle of jerkins.

I have no idea where you people get the idea that Mormons are prudes, or that we have no sense of humor. Maybe if you'd looked at the name that Mormon Pioneers gave those formations, you'd see that both assumptions are wrong.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Brigham's Unit:

"Organic remains?" WTF was this thing made of?

The underwear.

or that we have no sense of humor.

The fact that your founder moved from the middle of nowhere (mid 1800's Ohio) to a place considered so inhospitable and completely off the map (that is, Utah) that most other pioneers spent months or years avoiding the area completely to get to the west coast of America. And whereas most pioneers used wagons, the Mormon pioneers famously used hand carts to haul their belongings from Ohio to Utah. All because people gave him and his church a hard time in Ohio. Ballsy? Yes. Perhaps a tad too serious? Absolutely.

Hey, how did Ohio get mixed up in this? Joseph Smith was from New York (the state, not the city) and all the serious shiat went down in Illinois. He and his friends staid in Ohio long enough to wear out their welcome but it was still a pretty minor event in LDS history.

Those who were outraged by it are arrogant in that they think that whan it means to them is what it is and they apparently won't consider that other people see it in a different way.

Those wacky Austrians... they're just nuts

From the article:

The giant penis artwork "Gaia" measuring over 4 metres was designed by Emmerich Weissenberge, but it has now been blown up during a controlled explosion - in the name of art.

AND

Weisseberger's design was part of the project 'Realisation of art and sustainable development"

They spelled the artist's name wrong, and then gave him a completely different name. Also, in 2nd paragraph they began with ' type quotes and closed with " type quotes.

Some quality journalism, indeed.

Also...

Such a shame they had to destroy such a beautiful statue:

Again, I'm going to have to question why on earth you would name a giant penis monument after a mother earth deity.

Maybe the level of journalism here is exactly on par with the sort of thing it's covering?
