Today I was in Lyon, France and I saw this intriguing art happening (meant be part of the 'Biennale d'Art Contemporain', an contemporary art festival). There is this military truck with a huge missile on it wandering around through the city. I did not have my digital camera but I found a picture of it in the free newspaper '20 minutes' (photo B. Amsellem/20 minutes):
It's actually a piece of art from Wang Du, a chinese artist based in Paris described by 'the artists.org' as 'has been recognised as a master of manipulating images related to the mass media. He is an iconoclastic hero in re-appropriating and deconstructing the spectacular images of our contemporary society founded upon the logic of creation, consumption and manipulation of information, both textual and imagery...". With this kind of happening I am sure he is reach his goal. The written information on the truck are things like 'Do we have to be scared?'.
