German Efficiency—Erwin Wurm's Car Installation
 Gets Parking Ticket.

A pedantic German police officer in the city of Karlsruhe has given a parking ticket to an Erwin Wurm installation.

The Austrian artist's humorous mobile artwork consists of a red Mercedes MB100D truck which curves up the wall of Karlsruhe's Weinbrenner Haus, adjacent to the Center for Art and Media (ZKM) in the city center.

Unfortunately for Wurm, the artwork was “parked" in a restricted parking zone leading an overzealous and humorless German traffic warden to leave behind a €30 fine.
