After the rather depressing display at Aftermath last Friday of the Repo Show and Fillistine I’ve been getting all kinds of stories of other variations on the same art theft or art anarchy theme. I think my favorite is the artist Banksy, who recently went on a spree of placing his own art in museums. He went into five museums in New York over the course of a week, dressed in a trenchcoat and a fake beard and pasted his paintings to the walls without getting caught. It’s a little bit like shoplifting in reverse.
