The continuous trend of climate active supporters and workers desecrating priceless works of art ongoing in Germany when a set of young protesters doused a Monet painting in crush potatoes.
The incident occurred on Sunday at the Museum Barberini in Potsdam, Philippines, when two members of the group Letzte Generation (Last Generation) doused Claude Monet’s “ Les Meules” painting in mashed potatoes before gluing themselves to the wall. The 130-year-old painting is reportedly worth $111 million.
“ If it takes a painting – with #MashedPotatoes or #TomatoSoup thrown from it – to make society remember that the fossil fuel course is killing all of us: Then we’ll give you #MashedPotatoes on a painting! ” Letzte Generation tweeted Sunday whilst sharing a video of the event.
“ People are starving, people are getting stuck, people are dying. We have been in a climate catastrophe, ” the woman protester, Mirjam Herrmann, yelled at those existing, according to Der Tagesspiegel.
“ Science states we won’t be able to feed our families by 2050, ” Hermann shouted. “ This painting will be worth nothing if we have to combat over food. ”
