Banksy-Ausstellung in Bristol (UPDATE)

Banksy hat das City Museum in seiner Heimatstadt Bristol ausgeräumt und dort innerhalb von ein paar Tagen eine Mega-Ausstellung mit tonnenweise neuen Artworks aufgebaut. Die Ankündigung rauscht seit zwei Tagen durch meinen Feedreader, ich wollte mir aber nicht den Haufen ins Blog kleben, der im Moment noch Banksys Website ziert. Die BBC hat die Ausstellung vorab besucht, oben ein Video dazu.


A burned-out ice-cream van is among 100 works Banksy has installed at Bristol's museum, replacing many of the museum's regular artefacts.

The reason the museum was closed was kept secret from top council officials. Banksy said: "This is the first show I've ever done where taxpayers' money is being used to hang my pictures up rather than scrape them off."

Staged in the council-owned City Museum and Art Gallery, Banksy v Bristol Museum features animatronics, installations and a sensory display. "This show is my vision of the future, to which many people will say: 'You should have gone to Specsavers'", Banksy added.

The exhibition and its location have been a closely-guarded secret since October, with just a couple of museum officials in the loop. "I think we may have dragged them down to our level rather than being elevated to theirs," said Banksy of the subterfuge involved in staging the show in his home city.
