Inhaltsangabe zu „Banksy.“ von Gary Shove

Banksy is the closest thing we have to Che Guevara. Except, as far as we know, he's never flunked medical school, shot anyone or attempted to foment revolution in the Congo. You will find, gathered lovingly together, in this book - the single best collection of photography of Banksy's street work that has ever been assembled for print.

This book is designed to ignite, provoke and inspire you - and is a work of art in itself.§So hopefully when Palestine is a free state and school kids of the future wonder why Banksy went to Bethlehem, it will all be clear.§Banksy goes to Bolivia to s
