Better than Banksy?

The funniest story of the week comes from the Czech Republic, where government officials recently unvieled a work of art commissioned to commemorate the country’s presidency of the EU. The installation, titled Entropa, was meant to be a mosaic created by 27 different European artists, but instead was the handiwork of one David Černý, a controversial Czech sculptor. The whole thing is a hilarious piece of satire, which lampoons famous cultural stereotypes:

Germany is represented by intersecting “autobahns” that form the shape of a Swastika.

Bulgaria is represented by a toilet.

Romania is a dracula theme park.

The country of France is depicted as perpetually “on strike.”
