Adolf Hitler is a hole on Blackpool’s crazy golf course (photo)
TO Lancashire, where keen crazy golfers (not yet an Olympic Sport) are being invited to fire a ball through Adolf Hitler, the Nazi leaders famously limited in the ball department. Golfers should resist urges to bounce the ball in the manner of a Barnes Wallace bouncing bomb. If your ball passes through the U-pass of Jake and Dinos Chapman’s work. Hitler raises his arm in a salute.
You can see the object at Blackpool’s Grundy Art Gallery’s Adventureland Golf exhibition. Hole in Hitler is “the powerful image of the Nazi regime within the context of holiday fun and in doing so making reference to the British wartime spirit of making humour at the Fuhrer’s expense”.
The work is not a slight on golfers, who, as surveys prove, are not all Nazis.
