In 2022 the protests have been focused on precious artworks that are so valuable and one of a kind that can not be replaced. This has been done by various activist groups demanding action on the climate crisis.
Directors of musea and galleries around the world are “deeply shaken” by the attacks. The activists throw mashed potatoes, tomato soup, and other substances on the artworks and glue themselves on the walls of the frames of the artworks. Most galleries and musea are being tight-lipped about the attacks, to avoid more attention to the protests.
None of the works targeted have had lasting damage as many are covered by glass. The climate activists are seemingly targeting the most famous works not to damage them, but to draw media attention to the lasting damage of the climate crisis.
This series is inspired by artworks that have been vandalized and that we covered in precious oil. We do not approve of the protests but it certainly has been very impactful on the art world.
