Slovakia Logs Official Entropa Complaint
Ian Kubis, Foreign Minister of Slovakia has called the Czech Deputy Prime Minister Alexandr Vondra to voice an official complaint regarding the exhibit, the press center of the Slovakian Cabinet in Bratislava informs.
In the exhibit Slovakia is depicted as sausage wrapped with a string with the colors of the Hungarian flag - something the Slovaks consider an insulting message in the light of the recent ethnic tensions and the historically difficult relations between the two countries.
Bulgaria has already logged an official compliant about the exhibit representing the country as a squad toilet.
The Czech Republic and Vondra in person, apologized to "those who felt insulted", but still went ahead with the official inauguration of the exhibit. Vondra defended the provocative idea of the artist David Cerny.
"This is simply art and nothing more," Vondra said, adding that in order to realize our prejudices we first must get rid of them.
"Entropa" angered many in the EU with its form of a giant jigsaw map representing the "stereotypes" of each of the 27 counties in the Union.
The display portrays Bulgaria as a squad toilet, Romania as a Dracula theme-park, France is covered with the inscription "Strike!," Sweden looks like an IKEA box, the Netherlands is shown as series of minarets submerged by a flood, Germany is a network of motorways vaguely resembling a swastika, Spain is depicted entirely covered with concrete, Italy looks like a giant football stadium, the Denmark is composed of Lego blocks, which seen from afar remind of the Mohamed caricatures that fired up the Arab world in 2006 while the Great Britain is ascent from the exhibit.

This is a sign that the controversies between the newcommers are still evident ! Different states have achieved different development since they entered EU . Needless to say again that Bulgaria is bringing up the rear . So , what is the sense to conceal the truth ???
"There is no point banning Czech people coming here- there are more Bulgarians travelling to the Czech Republic- the beer is too damn good there."
Right you are, Prague is an amazing city, architecturally one of the best Baroque jewels in Europe, the prices are right, the beer is fantastic, the babes are hot..........Paradise on earth!
You are hilarious. I can just imagine you in person. foaming at the mouth, hating jews, asians, arabs, americans, english.. in fact you hate almost everyone except Russians.
The difference between your art work and Cerny is that he has style where as you have style just to clean toilets somewhere and perhaps this is too much to expect from you.

Enjoy another day of misery ;)

Let me try it:
Ugly Jews, kill the even uglier Arabs, and then go jump off a cliff!!!

Theremay have some left though, so I think I should hang around....
Czechs not welcome to BG!
Do you feel it? It's working;)
Did you know that David Cerny attended a summer camp in Bulgaria when he was a little child? Here is what was like...
Little David is at his summer camp. After dinner everybody picks up and washes in a hurry to get ready for the campfire. David lathers his knife with soap and starts cleaning it in a hurry... Wow, I am jerking my knife! David says.
The campers look at each other, some pause in disbelieve while other just roll their eyes... Yeah, itвЂ™s David Cerny!
