Heroic Drug Dealers Get Statue In German Park

A French-American artist has raised eyebrows across Germany after a three-meter bronze statue which immortalises drug dealers appeared in a Berlin park.

Artist Scott Holmquist set up his “Last Hero” sculpture on Sunday in Görlitzer Park in Kreuzberg. Known nationwide as the “drug park,” the memorial stood for 24 hours, as agreed with the city.

Holmquist, who produces expressions of “complete depravity” according to his Twitter bio, said the piece was designed to reflect “solidarity and human rights for all - including for dealers.”

The ‘art’ installation was presented as a riposte to ‘right-wing’ residents who had organised a protest against the immigrant drug dealers blighting the area.
