While visiting Prauge, Czech Republic back in 2012, I saw a very disturbing art installation of four guns pointed at each other. It was on my walk between the famous Charles Bridge and the Old Town Square when I saw this installation. I later found out that it was a museum called Artbanka Museum of Young Art which was closed this January. The installation was made by David Cerny and was called “Guns”. I could not find out the meaning of this installation, I can only guess that as the guns face each other that there is no winner when it comes to guns and war. What do you think the meaning is?
