- US NEWS: GUGGENHEIM MUSEUM FACES CRITICISM FROM ANIMAL ACTIVISTS
The Guggenheim museum in New York is facing accusations of animal cruelty over an upcoming show that includes an arena where live reptiles and insects will “devour each other” and a video will show dogs strapped to treadmills.
The exhibit called “Art and China After 1989: Theater of the World.” features over 150 pieces of art by more than 70 artists. However, three pieces in particular have attracted criticism by animal activists.
The piece that’s had the most negative press is “Dogs That Cannot Touch Each Other,” which is a video showing four pairs of pit bull type dogs tethered to treadmills, facing each other. This is similar to techniques sometimes used to train fighting dogs.
Animal welfare activists say that the video itself is unethical because of how it was created, and the way it depicts pit bulls. The dogs were originally filmed at a live exhibit in Beijing in 2003.
