Controversy in Satire

Satire can be controversial, irreverent and easily misunderstood. In this picture, Professor Ottmar Hoerl presents "Dance with the Devil" an exhibition which ran from October 15-19, 2009. The exhibition was displayed in an open market place in the town of Straubing in southeastern Germany. This open space was once the site of Nazi parades, a site in which the local synagogue was once sacked by Nazis and the town's 42 Jews were deported to concentration camps.
