In Japan we came across a transparent sticker that allows you to put the famous R Mutt signature on your own bowl. Having commented about museum gift shops trivialising art (you can see us at work here, here and also here) we made our purchase discreetly. What a gift for Michael Parekowhai who had such a bad run (if you think that pun was intentional, you’re dead wrong) with Duchamp in Christchurch.

Now from one of our regular readers (thanks again P) comes this site that has taken on the important task of recording toilets in the museums of the world. You’ll be pleased to hear that they are recorded while vacant (we had immediately thought of Daniel Malone turning his hand to art in the Auckland Art Gallery restrooms back in the day).

But if you are looking for art in toilets, you can do no better than Roadside America where you can check out Barney Smith's Toilet Seat Art Museum.
