I'm just gonna say this and you can judge or not: I'm obsessed with the Josef Fritzl case. I'm obsessed with it to the extent that I've set up Google alerts with various Fritzl family members' names, and never let a day go by without clicking each link.
I don't know why, and to be honest, I've purposely avoided exploring it too deeply (perhaps after realizing my dad--generally a really good guy--has a similar moustache). What I do know is that 2009, aside from being a great number of other things, was the year of Josef Fritzl in the arts. This year, the Fritzl case was represented onstage in a controversial Viennese play, a New Zealand rock opera, and even on the English National Opera's stage, in a production of Bartok's Duke Bluebeard's Castle.
In the visual arts, well, I found the nice portrait at left online, but also, a London gallery hosted a much-discussed Fritzl-based installation.
