In 2005, collage Alexander Kosolapov "the Icon-икра" was removed from the exhibition "Russian pop-арт" by the decision of the Director of the state Tretyakov gallery. His paintings This is my blood and This is my body was damaged by vandals at the exhibition "Beware, religion!" and the fair "Art-Москва". The repercussions of these events sounded for a long time. In particular, it is ironic that in 2010 the then existing edition of "ArtChronika", received warning of Roskomnadzor for the publication of only one reproduction of the work Kosolapova "Icon-икра". Work, by the standards of the author, it is harmless. — with Kosolapov there are things much stronger.
