Artists In Trouble

Don't laugh! This garden gnome by German artist Ottmar Hoerl is being investigated by Nuremberg prosecutors to ascertain whether it breaks a strict law banning Nazi symbols and gestures. The gnome - Heil ... er ... whoops! - was displayed in the window of a Nuremberg art gallery (title link). It looks like an ayatollah to me. Meanwhile, back in the UK, artist Maurice Agis of Dreamspace infamy has been granted leave to appeal against his £10,000 fine on the grounds he can't afford to pay it (CLICK).
