"Dick Captured by KGB" by VOINA

“…The most notorious Voina action was last June, when several members of the group painted a penis on the Liteiny Bridge in St Petersburg. Evading and fighting off security, the 65-meter high image was completed just before the bridge opened, as it does each evening to let ships pass through. The penis ‘erected,’ directly facing the St Petersburg headquarters of the FSB, the KGB’s successor. The group called the artwork Dick Captured by KGB.”
