Banksy as a TV Producer (Street Art 21)

Unfortunately I have no channel 4, but Curatedmag mentions Banksy will act as a TV producer for “The Antics Roadshow,” an hour-long special to air on UK’s channel 4 on August 13.

The show will chart “the history of behaving badly in public, from anarchists and activists to attention seeking eccentrics” and has been dubbed an “incomplete guide to total anarchy.” It will look at the stories behind some of the most audacious stunts of recent times and what motivates the perpetrators, from mindless boredom to heartfelt political beliefs.

Banksy: ‘Basically I just thought it was a good name for a TV programme and I’ve been working back from there’.

After the recent London Looting Riots I find it a bit ironic that Banksy will bring some reflection about the backgrounds of the (counter)culture leading to the riots.. Or would he?
