Black Lives Matter: l’omaggio di Banksy a George Floyd


Il misterioso artista inglese Banksy ha dedicato la sua ultima opera all’omicidio di George Floyd, unendosi alla causa promossa dal movimento Black Lives Matter

Fa indubbiamente molto rumore il post che Banksy – celebre street artist britannico la cui vera identità è sconosciuta – ha da poco pubblicato sul proprio profilo Instagram. Con la sua nuova installazione, infatti, il misterioso creatore – da sempre attento alle tematiche sociali – si è unito ufficialmente alle proteste portate avanti dal movimento Black Lives Matter per il recente omicidio del quarantaseienne afroamericano George Floyd da parte di un agente della polizia di Minneapolis.

Inizialmente ho pensato che avrei dovuto rimanere in silenzio e lasciare che a parlare fossero le persone di colore. Ma perché avrei dovuto farlo? Il problema non è loro, è mio – ha scritto l’artista, continuando – Le persone di colore vengono ignorate dal sistema. Il sistema bianco. Come una tubatura rotta che allaga l’appartamento di sotto. Questo sistema difettoso riduce in miseria la loro vita, ma non è compito loro ripararlo. Non possono perché nessuno le farà entrare nell’appartamento al piano superiore. È un problema bianco. E se i bianchi non lo riparano, qualcuno verrà di sopra e sfonderà la porta“.

Nell’ultima opera di Banksy – condivisa con oltre 9,3 milioni di seguaci – è possibile osservare il ritratto di una sagoma umana di colore nero (presumibilmente George Floyd) accanto a vari fiori (alcuni dei quali secchi) e a un cero la cui fiamma sta bruciando la bandiera a stelle e strisce. Un chiaro riferimento alla complicatissima situazione che gli Stati Uniti stanno affrontando in questo delicato periodo.

Nel frattempo, in tutto il mondo continuano a moltiplicarsi le manifestazioni a sostegno della causa promossa da Black Lives Matter, con marce di solidarietà in migliaia di grandi città, compresa Bristol, riconosciuta come la patria natale di Banksy.

  7. Hi there this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually
    code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so
    I wanted to get advice from someone with
    experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  8. Hey, I think your website might be having browser compatibility
    issues. When I look at your blog site in Firefox, it looks fine but
    when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
    terrific blog!

  11. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you
    have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently
    about. I’m very happy I came across this during my search for something regarding this.

  12. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added
    I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

    Appreciate it!

  13. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem
    to be running off the screen in Opera. I’m not sure if this
    is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility
    but I figured I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great though!
    Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Many thanks
