Burden-Transfixed.jpg(210 × 250 pixels, file size: 54 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg)

A photo of Chris Burden's Trans-fixed 1974 performance art piece featuring him being nailed to a Volkswagen in Venice, CA. The photo copyright is owned by the artist, Chris Burden.


Additional fair use justification:

  • This is an image of an unreproduceable event and a relatively iconic photograph of Burden and his work
  • This is a low-resolution image from which the original product cannot be constructed

Non-free content use rationale for Crucifixion in the arts[edit]

The image is used to illustrate the Modern art section of the article, which discusses the use of crucifixion imagery as a form of protest in modern art. The event illustrated in this photograph is considered by sources to be important to an understanding of this trend in modern art. Without this image, the modern art section of the page fails to illustrate this aspect of what the text discusses, only illustrating the non-protest usages discussed in the preceding paragraph. As a visual art, this image helps readers understand the emotional and confrontational aspects of the work in ways that text alone cannot, and omission of the image would significantly detract from readers' understanding of the subject.
