More Vandals

On the heels of last week's incident at the Musée d'Orsay, Carol Vogel has the following in today's New York Times:

"A grainy video of four masked vandals running through an art gallery in Sweden, smashing sexually explicit photographs with crowbars and axes to the strain of thundering death-metal music, was posted on YouTube Friday night. This was no joke or acting stunt. It was what actually happened on a quiet Friday afternoon in Lund, a small university town in southern Sweden where 'The History of Sex,' an exhibition of photographs by the New York artist Andres Serrano, had opened two weeks earlier."

Here is an old review of the show from ArtForum. Here is more on Serrano.
