An art display which invited the public to put live goldfish through a food blender did not constitute cruelty to animals, a Danish court has ruled.
The goldfish were placed on display swimming in the blenders, and visitors were told they could press the "on" button if they wanted.
At least one visitor did, killing two goldfish.
"It's a question of principle. An artist has the right to create works which defy our concept of what is right and what is wrong."
"It was a protest against what is going on in the world, against this cynicism, this brutality that impregnates the world in which we live," Chilean-born Danish artist Marco Evaristti said.
