Pierre Pinoncelli | Le père Noël est une ordure, 1967
Description: 
"Mommy, Santa went crazy, he is breaking all his toys," in front of the Galeries Lafayette in Nice. It was an action to show that Christmas is a commercial holiday, something a bit stupid and evil. I really took my time, the electric train, dolls ... smash! I kept breaking for more than 5 minutes. As I was not talking to a museum audience, people reacted with the violence and the innocence of the non-initiated.
