    Lego Concentration Camp
    Gear  /  Toy
    We have featured the Lego Electric Chair. Wow, now the Lego Concentration Camp! I have no word to say it! Click 2 enlarge!!!
    "Each box contains a set of bricks, that can be used to build the element of a concentration camp as shown on the box. All elements in the sets as well as those depicted on the boxes have either been taken from the mass-produced sets of LEGO bricks, or have been slightly altered by the artist. The prisoners are played by smiling skeletons from the "Pirate" set, while slightly modified figurines from the "Police Station" set appear as tormenters.
    In the upper-left corner of each box we find the following statement: "This work by Zbigniew Libera has been sponsored by Lego" - as the project was made possible thanks to the bricks presented by the polish department of the Danish company. Upon its presentation in Denmark, LEGO headquarters has launched legal complaints against the artist, however as a result of a fierce press campaign it has decided to drop the lawsuit. The controversies concerning Libera's LEGO also appeared in Poland, yet those where of a somewhat different character. As a result the artist has refused to exhibit in the Polish pavilion at the Venetian Biennale. In the meantime the work has become an icon and - in various versions - was exhibited in galleries and museum collections across the globe. One of sets was purchased by the Jewish Museum in New York "
