Germany: Gallery Pressured to Remove “Art” Featuring Erdogan with a Banana Up His Butt

Obviously, any sane country would ban “art” featuring a man with anything shoved up his ass on the grounds of obscenity.

But that isn’t why this is being banned. Germany has all kinds of disgusting filth everywhere. It is a cesspit of gross kikery.

This is being banned for the same reason Mama Merkel had a comedian arrested for making a joke about Erdogan – because Germany is a country subordinate to Turkey.


An art piece featuring Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan with a banana in his buttocks and titled ‘Turkish dictator’ caused a stir at the Art Karlsruhe fair in Germany and was removed from the exhibition.

Gallerist Michael Oess said he took down the provocative painting by Thomas Baumgaertel, a prominent Cologne-based graffiti artist known for his signature spray-painted bananas, “to avoid trouble.” The piece is part of the ‘Despots Series – Trump, Kim and Erdogan.’

That probably means he was pressured by the secret police of the West German dictatorship.

Apparently, he left up the versions with Trump and Kim Jong-Un.

Those are less obscene, but barely. And again, it isn’t about obscenity – it’s about politics.

“I have a certain responsibility toward other visitors,” he told German news agency DPA.  A Turkish journalist had complained about the picture on Thursday, and later used his cell phone to broadcast live video footage from the public display, according to Oess.

A couple of women also allegedly voiced their unease about “desecrating” the Turkish flag, which was in the background of the artwork. But the gallerist shrugged it off as “a staged event” and claimed the females were “agents.” The painting was later sold for €5,900 ($7,200), he said.

Baumgartel, aka the Banana Sprayer, was outraged over the decision to have the piece removed, even “without him being informed” and tweeted that he severed ties with the gallery after the incident.

“It just can’t be true that everyone is tucking their tails between their legs as the populists destroy artistic freedom and freedom of expression” the artist told DPA.  The fair organizers said it was not their decision, but that of the gallery owner, “to take down the caricature.”

The Turkish newspaper Daily Sabah reported on the “so-called painting,” saying that to Turks it constituted a “racist and vulgar attack” on their president, Erdogan.  Around three million Turkish people live in Germany.

Erdogan is openly saying he wants to relaunch the Ottoman Empire. That is his stated life-goal. That obviously includes the Ottoman agenda to conquer Europe.

And he is well on his way.
