Controversies

In 2006 Greenberg gave a lollipop for two-three year olds for 30 seconds and then suddenly took them away, to purposely provoke them to cry. [1] She photographed them and had them appear in her art gallery and were titled to reflect Greenberg's views on President George W. Bush and Christianity. It would become an issue of ethics.

"I think it's an ethical issue as much as anything, rather than damage to children: whether adults are justified in using children in this way."

Frida Briggs, Emeritus Professor of child development at the University of SA said.

She also caused controversy during the 2008 Presidential Election when she shoot a portrait of Republican candidate John McCain for The Atlantic and would say that she deliberately "left his eyes red and his skin looking bad." [2]
