Observearts: Norwegians in verbal brawl of art and ideology over stalinist/ communist monument - "Knus nazismen" by Bjørn Mellbye
Stalinist, trash, bling – bling, out of time and place? Something from the Soviet aera? Or decent honnor to the WW2 resistance heroes in the Osvald group? Art can be both entertaining and engaging, not at least when it is given political and ideological interpretations among both ordinary people and art experts. Sorry not to be able to translate the brawl, but you can take a look at some Oslo citizens and the object of hate and and even love here! More pics here.
