A fan of the Banksy exhibition

Contrasting with ‘The Auckland Banksy exhibition sucks’ is a post by Martyn Bradbury praising the Banksy exhibition.

The Daily Blog: The Liberal Agenda – Banksy Exhibition – 5 stars

By turning up in your thousands you tell Banksy his work matters and you fulfil the spirit of danger his art exists in by scaring the bejesus out of the Government security agencies who will be inevitably monitoring the exhibition.

The ability to criticise freely because of zero consequence is a power beyond branding and that’s why on its first day a staggering 1800 packed the Aotea Centre to get the chance to see his work up close.

To suggest missing this exhibition would be akin to a book burning is not an overstatement in any measure.

So he’s a fan.

By turning up in your thousands you tell Banksy his work matters and you fulfil the spirit of danger his art exists in by scaring the bejesus out of the Government security agencies who will be inevitably monitoring the exhibition.

Let the GCSB and SIS know that are in trouble if the revolution ever erupts.

Bradbury has turned his hope for starting ‘the revolution’ to an exhibition staged by the ex-manager of a street artist.

I doubt that the GCSB or SIS will be at risk of their bejesus scared all that much.

    Poor old Bomber, the man who gave bombastic a bad name.
    How many losers has he backed now?

    Not going is scarcely in the same league as book burning. I’d go if it was near me, but I don’t want to spend hours on an Intercity bus and a long, hot day in Auckland to do so.

    Does he expect everyone in NZ to travel to Auckland to this exhibition or be branded as being in the same league as book burners ? What a prat.

    Tends to support Griff’s comment elsewhere about a ‘Horseshoe’ shaped model of political affiliation …

    If this is extreme Left then it and extreme Right are just as bad as each other.
