Excerpt:

Three allegedly-Islamist men stole a portion of John Latham's God is Great (#4) (2005) out of legendary art Frankfurt space Portikus' current exhibition, according to Germany's Bild. The work, created one year before the British conceptual artist's death, consists of a Quran, a Bible, and a Talmud spread across the gallery floor on a field of shattered glass. The work is reportedly worth €150,000.
