Fucking Hell! Hitler as a Hippy

The Chapman brothers (Jake and Dinos) have opened a pair of exhibits inside White Cube at Mason's Yard in London. The first exhibit Fucking Hell is a collection of Boschian dioramas featuring skeletons, torture and Nazis gone wild. In the photo above, a group of living dead observe Hitler painting atop a clifside overlooking the apocalyptic carnage below.

Their second exhibit, If Hitler Had Been a Hippy How Happy Would We Be, features a group of watercolors painted by Hitler himself, which have been defaced by the brothers. They purchased the group of 13 paintings last year for a total of £115,000. By adding rainbows and other embellishments to the paintings, the brothers hope to redeem their artistic merit.

Nintendo to Hitler: Go get a Playstation

Skylar Wilcox (2008-05-20)

It looks like the crossover demographic between Mario Kart fans and neo-Nazis is about to be disappointed. Apparently through rigorous field testing, Nintendo Everything has found that attempting to connect to an online game of Mario Kart Wii with the Mii license "Hitler" results in a message stating that the name is not allowed and must be changed to connect.

Stalin, Osama, and Saddam, however, continue to be allowed through, and Mussolini continues to be too long.
