Short Description

banksy Golf Sale, 2003

Edition: 750 (150 signed)

‘In 1998, a young Chinese student’s sacrifice taught a valuable lesson to the world. A lesson Banksy has tried to cheapen with glib humor and crass opportunism but that still remains very potent. God Bless That Man.’

Golf Sale is a reinterpretation of Jeff Widener’s iconic photograph taken in the aftermath of the Chinese military’s violent suppression of the 1989 Democracy Movement. A man stands defiantly in front of a line of tanks attempting to block their path. It is widely considered to be one of the most notable acts of non-violent intervention in history. Banksy recreates the scene in black and white, this time, the man is holding a sign reading “GOLF SALE” in the style of the placards often seen around London’s Oxford Street.

‘We can’t do anything to change the world until capitalism crumbles.

In the meantime, we should all go shopping to console ourselves.’
