black cube too risky

VENICE. The German artist Gregor Schneider is claiming that an installation commissioned for the Venice Biennale, which opened in June and runs until 6 November, has been censored "For political reasons".

While the scale of the project may have made it difficult to realise in just six months, it is less clear why details of the work were not included in the Biennale catalogue. Instead of documenting Cube Venice 2005 as Schneider originally intended, his catalogue entry consists simply of six entirely black pages.
