Controversial internet entrepreneur Kim Dotcom’s Tread 1 is on show at Vienna’s MUMOK, Museum of Modern Art.
Artist Simon Denny has put together an installation titled “The Personal Effects of Kim Dotcom”, on show at MUMOK until mid October. Amongst the boy’s toys on show is a Devon Works Tread 1. Mr Dotcom, who was born Kim Schmitz, was the founder of Megaupload, a file sharing site shut down by US authorities for sharing pirated material. He was then arrested in New Zealand last year, and is now fighting extradition to the United States. Some of the luxury goods seized from his home are on show at the Museum of Modern Art – I’m just surprised there aren’t more watches. – SJX
