Public bench with bird control: art by Nadia Kaabi-Linke

Anyone who thinks they can simply lie down briefly on a public bench is already being sabotaged: the benches are deliberately too short for this, or the public benches are being interrupted by ‘comfortable’ armrests. Into our obsession with control and security and what that can ultimately derail comes Nadia Kaabi-Linke’s impressive artwork, Parkverbot (looted art). It captures our schizophrenic Western society in a nutshell, constantly talking about values such as freedom and peace but at the same time correcting the symbol of this – the Dove – by using the tools of an animal abuser.
