The Czech artist David Cerny has announced he had decided to remove his sculpture Entropa ahead of schedule over political changes in his homeland.

The controversial Entropa, which spurred a scandal by presenting Bulgaria as a squat toilet, was supposed to remain the European Commission building in Brussels until the end of the Czech EU Presidency on June 30, 2009.

Cerny, however, is taking down the sculpture in protest against the removal of the government of the former Prime Minister, Mirek Topolanek, and its substitution by a team of "pirates", as he himself called the new Czech Ministers.

"This is taking a political stand with which I would like to say that I disprove of the way this is happening, and the way in which the government has been swooped by old Bolsheviks, socialists, and the President Klaus", Cerny has declared as quoted by BGNES.

Cerny has also made it clear he did not support the new government of Prime Minister Jan Fischer, because it included many former communists.

"I don't want to support them, they do not deserve to lead the European Union, this is as if a pirate horde has taken over Europe", Cerny said.
