Just when you thought you’d seen it all, Italian artist Cristina Guggeri comes along and blows it out of the water with her latest series called Il Dovere Quotidiano, or “The Daily Duty”. In this series, Guggeri sets out to ‘humanize’ the world’s leaders by imaging what they might look like on the toilet.

And she’s got the interwebs all aflutter. “Disrespectful”, “unnecessary”, “awesome”, “just plain wrong”, “hilarious”, etc, etc.  Irrespective of your personal opinion, this controversial series has started a conversation about art.  And when it comes down to it, this is what art is all about…

Let us know what you think about Guggeri’s work in the COMMENTS section below.
