In the 1930s there was a worldwide trend towards making art more public in reaction to the introspective development of modern art. In Latin America, USA and Britain, mural painting became popular thanks to governmental sponsorship in the form of organisations like the Artists International Association. In 1933 Mario Sironi published his Manifesto of Mural Painting and commissioned murals by Giorgio De Chirico and Carlo Carrà. In Germany, Italy and the USSR murals reflected the totalitarian propaganda of the State.
In a statement, the German museum said the owner of the picture was convinced to lend it to the museum (“despite stiff competition from other quarters”) because of the institution’s strong track record of exhibiting urban art, including a JR exhibition in 2014. To buttress the Banksy presentation, the museum will host a talk titled, “Can the strategies of the art market be torpedoed while adding to fuel to its fire?”
