In St. Petersburg Orthodox Activists Shatter Objectionable Art Exhibitions

Teddy Bear exhibition in Petersburg became a venue of a fight between a visitor and the author of a composition. The guest smashed down an installation with the image of a crucified toy bear.

      The staff even had to send for police. Participants of the conflict wrote police statements.

      Organizers of the exhibition assure that they opposed this crucifixion installation. But the author of the work insisted that it had to be presented to public.

      Let's remind, earlier wide public response was caused by the exhibition Jake and Dinos Chapmen. End of Fun held in the Hermitage Museum. One of the installations there represented a Christian cross, to which the MacDonald’s clown and a teddy bear were nailed.
