German artist lights up US Embassy

The US embassy in Berlin was transformed into anti-NSA protest art for five minutes by German artist

German artist, Oliver Bienkowski made a point of criticizing the USA’s surveillance program by projecting the words ‘NSA in da House’ over the walls of the US Embassy in Berlin.

The image featured the US President in a back to front baseball cup, as well as him holding up a sign for peace. Not the cleverest piece of protest art ever executed.

The police closed down the show after five minutes. This isn’t the first time Bienkowski has targeted the US embassy; last July, he projected the words “United Stasi of America.” And last October during the Berlin festival of lights, the embassy itself projected images of Martin Luther King Jr. and John F. Kennedy on its exterior.

He was making a point of comparing the United States to the notorious East German secret police force. The Stasi employed extensive surveillance tactics against East German citizens during the Cold War, which still holds unpleasant memories for Germans.

With revelations that, among things, Chancellor Angela Merkel’s private phone calls were monitored by US agents, the level of distrust between Germany and the US has never been higher.

No-one should be surprised that Germany remains unhappy about the NSA spying on them (and everyone else).

Germany has called on Washington to end its spying on Europe’s biggest economy after relations between the two nations plunged to a new low in the wake of allegations of US espionage in the nation. Berlin expelled the US top intelligence officer in Germany amid claims that two German officials – one working for the domestic secret service (BND) and the other for the Defence Ministry – had handed over sensitive material to Washington.

Recently, the country expelled the CIA bureau chief stationed in Berlin, and apparently may only write sensitive documents with typewriters from now on.
