Landmarks That Have Been Destroyed By Tourists

Fill In the Blanks

The Verge

A woman visiting the Neues Museum in Nuremberg, Germany misinterpreted an installation’s “Insert Words” request and began filling in the empty spaces in the crossword-inspired “Reading-work-piece” by Arthur Koepcke. Estimated to cost $89,000, the damage to the piece-done in permanent pen- is believed to be reversible. When confronted about her reasoning behind the act, the tourist simply stated she was following the artwork’s instructions.
