Roman Delugan, of Viennese practice Delugan Meissl, whose touring exhibition has reached London's Candid Arts gallery, recently had a disturbing encounter outside a Tube station. He was accosted by a menacing-looking group of skinheads who heard his foreign accent and asked: 'Where are you from?'. 'Well, that's difficult, ' he replied. 'My mother comes from Italy and my father from Germany.' 'Ah, ' beamed his interlocutor, 'the best of both worlds - Hitler and Mussolini.

Have a drink'. It is perhaps not surprising that Delugan told the AJ he has no particular aspirations to work in the UK.
