The Konev Statue at Least Looked Like Ivan Konev

Contemporary Czech art is a parody and a tragedy in one…

The same people, who removed the statue of the Soviet commander, Ivan Konev built a statue of Marie Therese, an eighteenth century Habsburg empress that is known for abolishing serfdom. The Prague elite always had a strange fondness for monarchy and feudalism. Several political projects that arose from Prague had members of noble families as figureheads. It is, I guess, a romantic escape into simpler times before modernity for them.

However, aesthetically, the Commies that raised the statue of Ivan Konev had more sense for realism, and whatever the contemporary shit is…

THE EMPRESS SWALLOWED MORE THAN $100,000 OF THE MUNICIPAL BUDGET

Somebody is playing a cruel joke on the people of Prague, bombing the city with shitty art. Remember the monument to Vlasovite soldiers in Řeporyje Prague. The bloody fuck?

Figurines pissing on Czechia, another madness in Prague…
