Art activists hijack museum’s tainted show
Wednesday 18th May 2016
ART activists gatecrashed yesterday’s launch of the British Museum’s new BP-sponsored exhibition Sunken Cities – Egypt’s Lost Worlds, creating a large-scale art work symbolising how the oil giant’s operations in Egypt are “surrounded by human rights violations.”
Jess Worth, a member of campaign group BP or not BP? said: “The British Museum says this new exhibition will ‘tell stories of political power and popular belief, myth and migration’ — and it does. BP’s sponsorship is a story of gaining favour with repressive regimes, extracting fossil fuels and driving the rising sea levels that will cause people to flee sinking cities in the future.
“That story is already unfolding in Egypt. Meanwhile, the British Museum peddles the myth that BP is generous and ethical when it displays the company’s logos.”
