Last week I visited the exhibition – The Mystery of Banksy – A Genius Mind – an Unauthorized Exhibition – in the Technology Center in Mülheim/Ruhr. The exhibition was curated by the well-known galerist Virginia Jean.
I really like Banksy’s graffitis!! As most graffiti artists, Banksy is politically involved. All his pictures detect errors and failures of the running political system. And the way he expresses himself is unique! Passing by, you immediately catch the meaning of the picture on the wall.
The exhibition left a positive and a negative impact on me:
Positive: There was so much information about the artist and the different genres and actions, he worked or still works in. I learnt lots of things about his art, that I could never have learnt by any other medium.
Negative: The exhibition rooms were narrow and crammed, full of different information stuffed in each room. This is why I did not really enjoy my visit.
