But is it Art? Carrot "Bomb" bombs
During the inauguration of the new art museum in Kalmar a suspicious individual sneaked around the premises mounting sculptures made of carrots, alarm clocks, red and blue cables, metal wire and tape. On direct orders from the Swedish secret police the performance was stopped since the Culture Minister refused to give her inaugural speech if it were to continue.
The speech , as it later turned out, was about how art must be allowed to be free and provocative.
