"Bulgaria is a Turkish toilet, France is always on strike, Romania is a vampire theme-park and the UK... Well the UK doesn't exist.
That's the view of the European Union according to a controversial art installation by Czech artist David Cerny, commissioned by his government to mark its six-month presidency of the pan-continental body.
The work, "Entropa," frames various representations of each member state as components of a giant multimedia model kit.
But the piece, scheduled to have its official unveiling Thursday at the EU headquarters in Brussels, has sparked controversy. "
"Cerny is no stranger to controversy. In 1991 he was arrested after painting pink a Soviet tank that served as a Prague war memorial."
