EU Hoax

Sigmund Freud hangs on for dear life

One of David Černy's own sculptures

It seemed like such a good idea at the time: what better way to celebrate the Czech Republic’s presidency of the European Union than a giant art installation, with input from every member state, showing what we really feel about our place in Europe?

Eccentric sculptor David Černy was charged with the task of sourcing contributions from up and coming artists from the various countries.

Now the truth has emerged. Černy has invented all the artists himself, and all the works on display are his own. Those who appreciate the Czech sense of humour just laugh. Others are not so impressed.
