Helnwein: The child
"A big part of contemporary art is not connected to anything. "It's important for certain artists to respond to what's going on in present time." "Gottfried Helnwein is an artist whose work - "giant color portraits of stillborn babies, paintings that merge Nazi-archive photographs with pictures Helnwein has taken, enigmatic portrayals of apparently wounded or menaced children" - tends to provoke strong reactions, and in recent years, several individuals have expressed their displeasure with some of his images by defacing them" (Adding to the discussion artsjournal.com) Innocence lost by Anita Amirrezvani 04.

"There are three things that cannot be seen, even though they may be right in front of our eyes: the sun, genitals, and death"

Der Verwundete : le blessé d'Arno Brecker

To support his vision of 'A One Thousand Year Reich', Hitler ordered an extensive building programme that saw the construction of sports arenas, stadiums and public monuments. Many of these were adorned with sculptures, mostly of neo-classical men and women, athletes and glorified heroes.
DER VERWUNDETE (littéralement Le Blessé) est une sculpture d'Arno Brecker qui s'est inspiré de la photo d'André Leducq, parue dans la presse, blessé à la suite d'une chute sur le Tour de France en 1930. (La statue d'André Leducq).
