Partially shredded Banksy canvas to go on view in Germany
Banksy posted a video on his Instagram page accompanied by a quote attributed to Pablo Picasso -- "the urge to destroy is also a creative urge" -- showing the stunt unfolding and how he pulled it off.


BERLIN (AFP).- A partially destroyed Banksy canvas, shredded moments after it was sold at auction last year, will be exhibited in Germany next month, the Frieder Burda museum in Baden-Baden said Tuesday.

The work, now called "Love is in the Bin", will be shown for the first time since it was created in a theatrical stunt at Sotheby's in London in October.

"Since the birth of conceptual art, there have always been artistic attempts to volatilise or even destroy an artwork’s own existence, thus undermining its material value or trying to transfer it into a different value context," the Frieder Burda museum said, announcing the show.

Moments after the painting "Girl with Balloon" sold for £1,042,000 ($1.4 million, 1.2 million euros) -- a joint record for the maverick artist -- it unexpectedly passed through a shredder hidden in the frame.

The buyer went through with the purchase, and some art experts said it was probably now worth more than it had been before the stunt.

The work will be on display at Frieder Burda for four weeks from February 5.
