Blood Artist’s Workshop for Kids

An artist who crucifies animals on stage and sprays the audience with blood has shocked critics by holding art workshops for children. Extreme performance artist Hermann Nitsch – whose fans include David Bowie and Yoko Ono – has stunned audiences with his blood soaked events based on Roman sacrifices and orgies. Now the controversial artist is staging art sessions for youngsters at a museum dedicated to his work in Mistelbach, Austria. Curator Dagmar Kunert explained: “Hopefully some the master’s veneration for color will rub off on them. But the classes have infuriated critics who say his work is too extreme for children.”
