This ball-shaped building - "Kugelmugel" - is located in the Prater in the 2nd district. It was created by artist Edwin Lipburger in 1971 and originally was located in Lower Austria. In 1984 the "Republic of Kugelmugel" declared independence, Lipburger refused to pay taxes to the Austrian government and began to print his own stamps, for which he received a prison sentence in court. Only a pardon by the Austrian President saved him from going to jail. Austrian state officials relocated the structure to the Prater park and surrounded it with barbed wire fencing.
