Street Artist Banksy and former Young British artist Damien Hirst are two of the most popular representatives of British contemporary art. Situated in a triangle of art, consumerism and pop culture their work is among the most observed. A systematic academic study of their artistic viewpoints and references to consumer culture has long been waited for, and Ulrich Blanché is finally closing this gap: He examines Hirst’s and Banksy‘s art against the background of the London art scene since 1980. Blanché points out connections to Duchamp, Warhol and Koons, and reflects on the role of the recipient, the meaning of location and, especially, the references between art, consumer culture and marketing in their pieces.
