The Resurrection of Piss Christ

04.25.11 Marina Galperina

This mysterious new artwork is a direct response to the most recent destruction of an Andres Seranno’s Piss Christ print in France, or, rather, to our collective profiteering from the controversy and “real human conflict.” Piss Christ gets smashed: The media gets attention, the fundamentalists mobilize supporters and Seranno gets even more famous. Enter The Resurrection of Piss Christ – a completely anonymous, deliberately derivative image of Jesus in urine – a free web art object that you can freely download, distribute and abuse as you wish.
