An artist is planning to actually rape anyone who enters his exhibit. He says that it is a continuation of a previous work in which he punched someone in the face.

Obviously this is stirring up controversy, and I have to admit that I think this exhibit crosses the line. What do you think? Should he be allowed to do this under the guise of "art" or is this just the machinations of a sick sociopath?

Its not rape because anyone that goes in the tunnel knows it'll happen, and therefore wants it to. And if you WANT it, its not really rape anymore. By calling it the rape tunnel he has negated the rape, he should have called it the 'sunshine tunnel'.

This sounds a little questionable. Are you sure it's true?

Its douchebags like this that make artist like us worry about what bounds we can cross. Obviously rape is never ok, even for "animalistic art". Don't get me wrong, I have written scenes for plays or stories where the unspeakable happen, but the beauty about art is there is a layer of obscurity, almost a safey net were the audience is not at risk. This guy needs to go to federal prison and his cell can be his exhibit.

First so many posts state that this is not art, and I whole-heartedly agree with them!

It definitely sounds like a hoax.

Questions though arise...

Where is this supposed to take place, so I can actually avoid ever actually stepping to within 50 feet of this thing.

And 2 - Could this really be one big sick publicity stunt?

Personally I am not impressed, as I love art, but this never the way to publicise it.

Dudes...the whole thing is fake. It's all a hoax! Read the comments below the article. For example, you'll see where the picture of the "Rape Tunnel" was ripped from.

I think he has created art in itself. I dont think he is going to do it but rather make peope think about. If you see we are talking about him and what he is going to to, but will he do it or did he just want people to see how some artist have gone too far and make a statement. If he warns before you go in you gave consent therefore not being rape therefore you being interested in his "art" and what it was about. He is making you think of the choices you make even though knowing what is about to happen after you have crossed the door or path. Kinda weird but smart in some way. But if he actually does it than he's just sick in the head.
