The art group Ztohoven have sparked controversy by inviting gallery goers to send anonymous mobile phone text messages to Czech politicians. Their installation Moral Reform in an exhibition at Prague’s DOX Centre of Modern Art features the mobile numbers of numerous politicians and a free, untraceable phone. One target, the minister of finance, Miroslav Kalousek, told the iDnes news website that he had received hundreds of SMSes, some of them vulgar and threatening. Mr. Kalousek said, however, that he had had his number for over a decade and had no intention of changing it. Ztohoven have frequently come into conflict with the law; one member, Roman Týc, was imprisoned for a month this year after amending traffic lights to show the red and green figures in various poses.
