Two activists associated with Andy Warhol’s work in Australia

In a new chapter in a series of protests that have a work of art as the protagonist, environmental activists got their hands on the transparent protection of one of the famous works. Campbell’s Soup By Andy Warhol, without damaging it, pointed to the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra, where it is displayed.

The protest, by a group called Stop Fossil Fuel Subsidy, comes after a series of similar actions with famous works of art around the world have escalated in recent times.

The workers also painted with aerosols on the protective layers of the various working canvases. These glasses were quickly removed for cleaning.

The museum reported on this exhibit in a statement and stressed that it follows similar events in Australia and abroad.

The attacked work is an adaptation of the famous Campbell’s Soup That Warhol was first created between 1961 and 1962 and has become one of the most recognizable symbols of the American pop art movement.

Activists affirmed that they chose this work to indicate the danger of capitalism.

“Andy Warhol portrayed mass consumerism in these iconic series. Now we have unbridled capitalism.

“Stop the Fossil Fuel Subsidies is exposing the danger of capitalism by following a work by Andy Warhol. The art of returning to consumerism has gone insane. While some Australians are starving, the government is willing to subsidize fossil fuels. Pays $22,000 per minute,” the organization elaborated on its Twitter account.

Other environmental activists recently got their hands on the frames of two emblematic Goya paintings in Madrid or sipped soup at Van Gogh’s “Sunflowers” in London and another by Claude Monet in Germany.
