Germany: Vandals Smear Anti-Semitic Graffiti on Munich's Haus der Kunst

Via artnet (h/t Honestly Concerned):
The curatorial program of Munich's Haus der Kunst has confronted the institution's historical Nazi associations extensively. Now, the museum was attacked by unknown perpetrators who smeared the building with anti-Semitic graffiti on Thursday night, the museum said in an announcement.

Bayerische Rundfunk reports that four swastikas were scrawled over the main entrance while an exhibition opening was underway inside. The symbols were drawn near an installation called Résistance by the French Jewish artist Christian Boltanski.

The vandals also drew a star of David over a floor installation titled Travertin/Judenpech by the German-born Polish Jewish artist Gustav Metzger outside the building. According to Munich police, the vandals used white chalk to draw the hateful graffiti.  more
