Critical Action

Think a piece of art totally sucks? Don't just verbally criticize it, physically destroy it! 'Art Crime: A Journal of Modern Iconoclasm' objectively documents 17 notable instances of art vandalism. Crimes range from teenagers attacking Serrano's "Piss Christ" with a hammer to conceptual artists making practical use of Duchamp's famed urinal. Some of the crimes actually prove more interesting than the conceptual works they deface (although I could have done without the projectile vomit on the Mondrian). --Curt Cloninger
