"Satanic" may be going a bit far...
|BUTEYONGERA, Uganda - A Danish artist has stirred up controversy by giving Ugandan villagers free goats, sheep and pigs - but on condition that they adopt his name.|
Kristian von Hornsleth says his aim is to highlight the perils of tied aid in Africa, but his project has already been denounced by a Ugandan minister as "evil and satanic."
Hornsleth launched an exhibition in Copenhagen on Friday of the project. The 108 photos of people holding up their new "identity cards" in the red, yellow and black of Uganda's flag with the name "Hornsleth" are meant to comment on conditions Western donors attach to aid.
