Banksy's self-shredding painting still allows wealth to possess, gatekeep, and define culture, still bottlenecks access through elite auctions. Call back if he makes a piece that hacks and redistributes the contents of the buyer's bank account.


Hmmm. If the piece is just left out in public with a warning that it will do that, is it still illegal?

@jplebreton Also after seeing the video... I don't think the intention was even to destroy the piece, given that it stopped partway through. Just more performance art, still owned by the wealthy.
