The Austrian presidency of the European Union is off to a controversial start with the 25Peaces art exhibition by 150 artists from the EU. One set of posters, by Spanish artist Carlos Aires, of models with masks of Jacques Chirac, George Bush and the Queen of England positioned as though they were having sex, has now been withdrawn amid widespread protests from Austrian politicians and the media. The rest of the exhibition, which has received about 1 million in public funds, continues as planned until the end of January. It is part of a series called euroART, which is meant to reflect social, political and economic trends in the EU.
