David Cerny’s sculpture “Man Hanging Out”


Hanging out. . . all over the place!

You’re witnessing “Where in the World?” history, gentle readers. For the first time ever, we’re accepting more than one answer as the correct one!
Czech artist David Cerny’s sculpture “Man Hanging Out”

July’s photo depicts controversial Czech artist David Cerny’s sculpture “Man Hanging Out,” which poses father of psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud in a rather precarious position. Where?

Well, this month’s photo was contributed by Chuck Bingley of Richmond, Virginia, who snapped the picture in Olomouc, Czech Republic, in 2011. Little did we know when printing Mr. Bingley’s photo that Freud came quite late to Olomouc. The original sculpture was installed in Prague in 1997 and remains there. Copies of the piece subsequently have dangled in Berlin, London, Stockholm and even Grand Rapids, Michigan (where he caused many calls to suicide hotlines from concerned citizens).

Because the photo does not include enough background to put it into the proper context of its Olomouc setting, we’re accepting as correct all answers that mention any place Dr. Freud’s figure hangs out. Thirty-seven correct answers were received, and BONNIE OUTTEN of Willis, Virginia, won the drawing.
