Degenerate Art: Chapman Brothers collaborate with dead Austrian artist.
Cheeky artists "The Chapman Brothers" purchased a lot of Hitler's student watercolors for £115,000 & proceeded to add things like rainbows & black suns to them, calling the project, "If Hitler had been a Hippy, How Happy Would We Be." “If hell exists and Hitler exists in it, he would be spinning if he saw these. It’s not his work any more. It’s our work,” said one of the cheeky Chapmans. Here's another piece about this novelty-based "art" project. Something about this whole affair makes me wish that some sort of operatives of Hitler would go give these Chapman boys a going over.
