NSFW: Artist Arrested for Feces on Flag

In her quest to make a most pungent political statement, a radical performance artist has pushed the limits of free speech so far that the police are now pushing back. In an effort to ridicule emotional attachment to national flags, Natali Cohen Vaxberg filmed herself squatting and excreting on dozens of them, uploading the short films to the internet. Last week Israeli police arrested the artist on charges of “defiling a national symbol”, as one of the flags was Israel’s.

In a series of short videos and a crap-compilation video entitled “Shit Instead of Blood,” Cohen Vaxberg emptied her bowels onto the national flags of more than twenty countries, including those of both Israel and Palestine. No continent save Antarctica was spared, with the United States, Iran and even Vatican City receiving the fecal flag treatment. Accompanied by a musical selection by Frederic Chopin, Cohen Vaxberg drops deuce after deuce on the federal emblems.

Cohen Vaxberg has courted controversy in the past with a series of online videos in which she delivers soliloquies as the personification of the Nazi Holocaust, another of Israel’s bete noirs. Cohen Vaxberg performed one iteration of the monologue, at Yad Vashem, Israel’s national Holocaust museum.
