Artist: Lars Vilks|
Confronting Bodies: Exhibition organizers
Date of Action: July 2007
Specific Location: Karlstad, Sweeden
Description of Artwork: The pieces in question are three sketchy drawings depicting Mohammed as a dog. Another drawing by Vilks has Mohammed and Hans Christian Andersen are visiting the Carlsberg brewery in Copenhagen.
The Orebro (Sweeden) newspaper Nerikes Allehanda publishes the drawing as part of an Aug 19, 2007 editorial criticizing several Sweedish art galleries for refusing to display a series of prophet drawings by Vilks. In response Muslims stage a demonstration and demand the editor apologize and never publish a similar image. The editor refuses to do that.
