Europe: Entropa

Belatedly, links to some posts on Entropa: Margarete of The Foreigner's Guide to Living in Slovakia believes “it should be taken down”; Kosmopolito thinks that “the debate around the project is also part of the installation”; BBC's Mark Mardell writes that “the fact that it is a hoax does not mean that the art itself is bad”; Blue, Black and White Alert doesn't think Entropa is “that incendiary”; A Fistful of Euros considers Entropa “an ugly but really funny piece of work.”

    As an American, I have enjoyed Entropa because it inspired me to find out why each country was depicted as it was, and because stereotypes aren’t dangerous because they’re entirely false. It’s interesting to see how people in different places perceive other countries, and their own.
