If it’s sexist and misogynist to some, does this mean it’s not art?
Is it a matter of political correctness, quality, context, or in the end, a matter of taste?
Designed by Viennese artist Rudolf Scheffel for the “toilet-bar Vienna” next to the National Opera, the urinals featured lips covered in red, orange or blue lipstick, a bright red tongue and gleaming white teeth.
“Each urinal will, of course, be meticulously cleaned,” the seller said. “The artist himself will sandblast it, brush the mouth’s teeth, and give them a new varnish.”
Artist and sculptress Jo Mann created her “one vision” as part of a collective for the 2006 International AIDS Conference in Toronto. Jo crafted her five foot “masterpiece” with plaster of Paris, a garden hose, vacuum hose, and duct tape. A condom completed the piece.
Mann’s artwork was put up for auction on EBAY. Profits were to be donated to the Toronto-based Stephen Lewis Foundation. The listing was taken down on EBAY after it was determined the photo was in violation of EBAY’s policies. Jo was able to re-list her work after following EBAY’s guidelines.
