The Antics Roadshow

The Antics Roadshow is an hour-long special made by Banksy charting the history of behaving badly in public, from anarchists and activists to attention seeking eccentrics.
Contributors include Michael Fagan talking about breaking into the Queen’s bedroom: ‘I looked into her eyes, they were dark’; and Noel Godin, who pioneered attacking celebrities with custard pies: ‘Instead of a bullet I give them a cake’.
Explaining his reasoning behind the show, Banksy said: ‘Basically I just thought it was a good name for a TV programme and I’ve been working back from there’.
Narrated by Kathy Burke and produced by Jamie D’cruz, The Antics Roadshow examines the stories behind some of the most audacious stunts of recent times and what motivates the perpetrators, from mindless boredom to heartfelt political beliefs.
It includes a world exclusive first interview with the man responsible for putting the turf Mohican on Winston Churchill’s head.

Art Fart

Il prossimo numero di Adbusters ruoterà intorno alla domanda: “L’arte può ancora cambiare il mondo?”. E’ possibile esprimere le proprie opinioni (le più interessanti verranno pubblicate) scrivendole in un form qui. Per ispirarvi, tra una risposta e l’altra, qualche pillola di saggezza. Tipo:

“Art without spirituality is cynical, manipulative, commercial and consumer oriented, ego centered, competitive, tired, afraid to die because it has not lived, fame seeking, exclusive, elitist, expensive, anthropocentric, and self-serving — just like politics without spirituality, health care without spirituality, or religion without spirituality.”
