Maurizio Cattelan, one of the coolest men in Italy,is about to open a big exhibit in Milan. The poster that was supposed to advertise the event, though, portrays one of Cattelan's works, "HIM", a statue that depicts a praying Hitler, down on his knees. It's classic Cattelan style.
It has been deemed too offensive to be used around town, and pulled.
Some are therefore calling for Cattelan to cancel the exhibit and move it somewhere else (Venice has been floated -- I know, I know -- as an alternate location).
But now someone called a Godwin, took the ball and went home.
Offensive? You decide.
OC's take? She's creeped out by "Rheingold", too, but it's not like she's asking la Scala not to advertise it.
