"Insert Words"

"Insert Words", said an artwork resembling a crossword puzzle and one visitor at a German museum took it literally.

The 91-year-old woman is being questioned by police after filling in the blank spaces with a ballpoint pen, reported news agency dpa.

Reading-work-piece was created by avant-garde artist Arthur Koepcke in 1965.

It features the phrase "Insert Words" and was displayed at Nuremberg's Neues Museum.


Afraid I thought this was funny!!!!! Well! it was part of a crossword puzzle with "Insert Words" written on it. So that's an art work???? I don't blame the woman and I laughed at this post!!!!! I wonder if she used crossing words that fitted the grid???? Would love to see the result!!

Oh dear, the poor woman. Do you know what happened to her afterwards?

Only:

"The elderly woman was visiting on July 13 with a group of senior citizens.

Museum spokeswoman Eva Martin said museum officials believe the work can be restored.

Museum chief Eva-Christina Kraus filed a criminal complaint, saying the case had to be reported for insurance reasons though there was no malicious intent.

Police said the woman is being investigated for damage to property."

And the comments following are all in favour of the woman and scathing about the art work!!!!!

I am not surprised We had a similar case here in Germany years ago, the artist Joseph Beuys had similar art, old used stuff put together. One of his praised art piece was basically a big stain of grease on a wall. One of the cleaners one morning did her best to remove the stain, she wasn't aware it was a so-called "piece of art".

I'm really surprised at some of the "art works" that are praised so in the art world!!!!!

YEARS ago, when it was fashionable, a boy friend of my sister's fashionably greased up his hair. Unfortunately he sat at a chair next to a wall and lent his head on the wall. Guess what happened . Years following we forgot his name and referred to him as "grease spot".

Lost the chance of an art work there obviously, next time the room was decorated

I remember hearing on the news several years back about an art installation of an unmade bed. I still do not understand how that is art.
