Urinating Policewoman On Display In Germany

By Wyatt Earp | January 15, 2011

A German artist is under a “stream” of fire for this sculpture of a urinating police officer that was “leaked” to the press. Naturally, the artist – a “whiz” with a knife – claims the work is fine.

Oh, those wacky Germans. If you don’t run to the museum, they come get you.

A prize-winning lifelike sculpture of a squatting policewoman urinating has whipped up a storm of protest in Germany, where it went on prominent display last week. The work entitled “Petra” by 27-year-old German sculptor Marcel Walldorf is made of silicone and metal and has pitted public officials against art world aficionados in the debate over what is acceptable in the name of high culture.

It depicts a young female police officer in full riot gear crouching to pee, with exposed buttocks and a small gelatin “puddle” affixed to the floor of the gallery at the Academy of Fine Arts in Dresden, eastern Germany.

Good Lord, if we’re going to put a silicone German woman on display, can’t we just use this chick?

Sure, Heidi. You’re “all natural.”

    People make sculptures like that in America too. We just don’t care.

    I can’t remember the last timeI was in an art studio! Just like TV, I ignore the things I don’t want to see, but not going there.

    Now Heidi? I might visit her on the SkinaMax channel!!

    Lou – Yeah, the crucifix in urine was supposed to be “art.”

    Danny – Or a Victoria’s Secret fashion show.

    Rick – Seconded!

    The “artist” who this may think it is number one… but I think it is number two.

    It stinks.

    Oops. That should read, “The ‘artist’ who did this may think…”

    Gotta get a new keyboard.

    As a veteran of many a party in the woods, I can tell you that my hands would not be on my knees. The left hand would be pulling back my pants, and the right would be holding wadded up Kleenex. Also, the position of her butt is all wrong, that low to the ground and you’re spraying all over yourself. Clearly, the artist failed to do his research.

    Exactly. Who really cares?
    Now a sculpture of Mohamed peeing, well, that’s brave.
    This is puerile and childish.

    Slogan? “Urine Good Hands with the Polizei.”

    Or, “P” is for Policewoman

    Proof –

    OR, she puts the P in policework.

    No, no, it makes sense. What is german culture famous for?
    1) Scat porn, and,
    2) Fascist BDSM porn

    Of course due to German laws, they can’t depict this sculpture dressed up in Waffen SS uniform, so the artist has obviously tried to substitute in a modern replacement of a symbol of state power: a policeman (woman) in riot gear.

    With apologies to George Orwell: “If you want a picture of the future, imagine a policewoman in riot gear squatting on a human face—forever.”

    Robert B. – Definite crap, in my opinion.

    Mrs. Crankipants – That is shudder-worthy on so many levels.

    Veeshir – And it would get the artist an instant fatwa.

    Proof – Well crafted, as always.

    JT – The Berlin Police Department always leaks information to the press.

    Bill – It’s a shame Ilsa wasn’t there to be an SS model.
