The End of Fun in Russia

ST. PETERSBURG — Jake and Dinos Chapman’s exhibit The End of Fun at the newly refurbished contemporary wing of The State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia, is under attack from Russian Orthodox Christian believers, who feel insulted by aspects of the brothers’ show, even though the exhibit is prohibited to anyone under 18 years of age. Offering “extreme apologies” to believers, the brothers vowed never to set foot in the country again.
