>> The money was supposed to be used to create modern art. And it was - but not in the way a Danish museum expected when it gave an artist the equivalent of $84,000. In return, it received two empty canvases.

The artist, Jens Haaning, says the blank canvases make up a new work of art - titled "Take the Money and Run" - that he calls a commentary on poor wages. One thing it's not, he says, is a theft.

"It is a breach of contract, and breach of contract is part of the work," he said, according to Danish public broadcaster DR.

"The work is that I have taken their money," Haaning stated.<<

I wonder what his other looks like?
