We observe Van Gogh’s renowned Sunflower
painting with an extensive spritz of tomato soup.
This spill refers to a recent incidence of vandalism
by Anti-Oil Activists, who entered into a museum
and ruined artwork by dumping red soup on it, in
order to protest the use of oil.
This artwork masterfully contrasts the Minions’
fun anarchy with the vandals’ destructive chaos,
demonstrating the connection between popular
culture and activism. It raises significant
questions about the legitimacy of advocacy using
such extreme and contentious ways.
