Banksy homage to Bataclan stolen from Paris theatre

Rubata l'opera di Banksy in memoria delle vittime del Bataclan | Collater.al

Mural by Banksy was stolen from a fire-exit door of Bataclan theatre that depicted a grieving woman to commemorate the 90 victims from terrorist attack dating back to November 13, in 2015. It was precisely the structure to make known the happened via Twitter, explaining that the work was stolen last Friday with the whole door.

Needless to say that the gesture has aroused a deep sense of indignation as the mural “belonged to everyone: local residents, Parisians, citizens of the world …”, as was declared on social networks by the institution:

“Banksy’s work, a symbol of recollection and belonging to all: locals, Parisians, citizens of the world, has been taken from us”

Decontextualizing a street art artwork and in particular this kind of work, it weakens its meaning becoming empty merchandise.
