Today, there was another attack on the Flick Collection (story [in German only]). Read an older article on the controversy. A large group of German artists and intellectuals also just published a full-page ad in one of Germany’s most respected newspapers, blasting the show. In a sense, the controversy about the Flick Collection gives an almost quintessential example of how Germany is still struggling with its past. I personally side with the protestors. Flick’s behaviour is nothing but disgraceful and disgusting - I guess that runs in the family.
