Not Good Enough

To recall why this series is here, go to thisĀ original post.

Today’s disgusting, deranged, and disturbingly immoral public art work comes to you courtesy of the Sanssouci Park, surrounding the Sanssouci Palace at Potsdam in Germany.

Whilst under the care and protection of the East German Democratic Republic (cough, splutter), not many of the great unwashed could get in to be corrupted by the immoral and degrading statues and images on display. The City of Tea Tree Gully and the elected members would have been proud!

Perhaps they aspire to the Tea Tree Gully Democratic Republic. Will we soon have paid spies and informers? Perhaps dobbing in the neighbours for unseemly landscapes glimpsed hanging on lounge-room walls. And god forbid the consequences if you should have a still-life. Don’t even dream of the exile to the gulags if you have a clandestine nude.

Today anybody can go to Sanssouci and wander through the park (nearly) free of charge, to be corrupted by the evil works of art on display.

Today’s Strumpet With Trumpet – good enough for Germany – not good enough for Tea Tree Gully.

Outrageous and someone even put her on a pedestal!

‘Strumpet with Trumpet’ – very nice!

She appears to be raising her hand, getting ready to shout to a nearby statue (off-camera, of course), “Call that a trumpet? THIS is a trumpet, buddy boy!”

Actually access to all these goodies was OK under the DDR. We were there while the DDR was in power. Actually it was when the Kaiser was in power [abdicated 1918] that public access was forbidden. All you needed post royalty was the admission price which good socialists as they were, was very low and affordable.
It’s no wonder that Communism fall over; it was corrupted from within by being able to look at all this stuff.
