I’ve been fascinated by Banksy’s work since experiencing it’s power in Palestine a few years ago. He’s radical and showy and sassy, and I do believe he genuinely wants to make a difference in our world through his art. Last month he did it again by having his artwork self-destruct at auction. Take a look:
Here’s what I’m thinking about:
Should property owners paint over Banksy’s work when it’s found?
How does the fact that Banksy paints graffiti impact his message?
Why do frames have so much power to change the viewing of art?
How would you define art?
Define institutional art. Do you like this type of art?
Should auction sales go to the artist?
Who do you think is behind this recent stunt?
