Art That Kills - Is Your Family Safe?

Back in July of 2006 an art disaster like no other occurred. An inflatable multicolored walk-in “psychedelic cathedral” bouncy castle broke free of its moorings and blew away in the window leaving several wounded and two dead in Durham, UK. Artinfo reports that this week, after a 19-month investigation, Maurice Agis, creator of Dreamspace, was charged with “gross negligence manslaughter.” Charges were also brought against Brouhaha [how apropos] International Limited, a Liverpudlian promotional company and the local Council.
