Arbroath – A new exhibition at Blackpool’s Grundy Art Gallery invites art lovers for a round of crazy golf with a difference. A miniature course – the Doug Fishbone and Friends Adventureland Golf – has been installed in the gallery with each hole designed by a different artist. Jake and Dinos Chapman, known for creating challenging works, have made a Heil Hitler hole. Players skilled enough to get a hole-in-one here will be saluted by a replica fuhrer shrieking ‘No, No, No” Those behind the controversial installation sought the views of war veterans who thought the idea of firing balls at the man whose tyrannical and murderous regime brought Europe to its knees in the 1930s and 40s was fitting giving it mocked the dictator, although others think it tasteless.
Terrible. This designer should be embarrassed.
Now I’m no World War II buff, I’m not even a World War II skinny, and I still know that Adolf Hitler had a lot more to say than “no, no, no, no”. That’s not art. That’s just stealing lyrics from Destiny’s Child circa 1997. It has no zing, no zork, no kapowza. And worse yet it it’s not even that offensive. Mediocre concept with horrible execution. Shit’s the wackest Hitler mini golf hole these eyes have ever seen, bro.
