Art Market Documentary | “WTF? Another Banksy documentary?”, was what I thought when I recently stumbled upon “How to sell a Banksy”! But after I watched the trailer and read the synopsis I became aware, that this film is not about Bansky, but about the crazy institution of the international art market…
Banksy’s work now reportedly changes hands for millions. But he puts up his street art for free. Have you ever wondered what would happen if you got your hands on one of these? Does it mean you’ve found a winning lottery ticket or just scraped some worthless crap off a wall?
How to sell a Banksy raises questions of ownership, authentication and the true value of art itself. Through all the chaos and incompetence comes a modern-day, true-story, crime-theft, comedy-caper. (howtosellabanksy.com)
I’m sure there will be more info soon! But now I want to know what do you think about this film? Did you ever owned an Banksy? What was the most expensive artwork you ever bought? Share your experiences with the art market!
