Probably one of the most famous artworks on this list, Piss Christ is a small plastic crucifix submerged in a jar of the artist’s urine. Serrano received death threats and lost government grants because of the work, and it was attacked with a hammer when it was exhibited in Australia in 1997. The work was vandalized “beyond repair” by Christian protesters during an exhibition in France in 2011.
