Pink Tank is an artwork by a significant Czech sculptor and provocateur David Černý. It is situated in the Military Technical Museum in Lešany near Prague in Czech Republic .

Tank in Pink

David Černý used the pink color to paint the legendary tank No. 23 that was installed in the Smíchov district in Prague since the year of 1945 to commemorate the liberation of Czech Republic. At the time, the 23-year-old student used water based paint balakryl to color the tank. This action provoked massive public discussions and an official protest of the Soviet government. David Černý was persecuted several times but the tank was repainted again with the support of the Civic Forum. David Černý was accused of damaging a national cultural monument. When the defiant artist was finally released, the tank’s status of a national cultural monument was dismissed and during a reconstruction of the square where it stood, it was decided that the tank will be removed. On June 13, 1991, the tank was first placed in the Military Museum of Kbely and later became a part of an exhibition in the Military Technical Museum in Lešany built in the years of 1996–99. Its pedestal was destroyed. Some of the officials from the Communist Party tried to renew the monument but none of them were successful, not even František Hoffman from Prague who suggested placing the monument at Vítkov in May of 2005. So after several obstructions the tank finally settled down in the Technical Museum in Lešany. The Pink Tank, once a provocative artwork, now rests in the museum and waits for its regular pink paint renewal.
