The work of art “Mural, Berlin” has created political momentum in Uppsala. The painting is namely a replica of Max Lingners works “Aufbau der Republik”, made in collaboration with the Communist regime in East Germany, reported Swedish Radio.
– The work shows well an ideal image of DDR society, says the artist Krikortz to SR, as referring to Lingners artwork.
Among other things, proposing the Christian Democrats in Uppsala, that you should put up an explanatory sign and enclose the artwork with barbed wire.
– First, we think that you should keep the artwork, and it is important that the arts have freedom and not be mixed into politics, but we think that art sometimes need to be explained and put into context, said Councilor Jonas Segersam (KD) to SR.
Krikortz do not think it will put up some barbed wire around the artwork.
– This is a very absurd proposal that the Christian Democrats have come up with and it will hardly be implemented, he said.
