Swedish artist's Muhammad musical courts new controversy
by Peter Vinthagen Simpson
Swedish artist Lars Vilks is at the centre of a new controversy as his new musical Dogs premiered in Stockholm on Saturday.
Meanwhile, an exhibition of hisMuhammad caricatures has been blocked by Kalmar Art Museum.
At a panel discussion after the premiere of the musical - a filmed documentation of events occurring after the drawings of the Muslim prophet Muhammad as a roundabout dog, chaos reigned on Saturday.
When Vilks stood to address the several hundred people gathered in the ABF building in Stockholm, a young woman rose to her feet, made threatening gestures with her key ring and screamed at the artist.
