To promote Banksy’s The Walled Off Hotel—also known as the hotel with “the worst view in the world”—the elusive artist set up a stall for the first time ever at the World Travel Market London.
Put on display at the booth is a replica separation barrier, along with “free stuff” that guests who “pretend to be a travel agent” at the trade fair can obtain.
The show, which runs between 5 November and 7 November, expects a visitor count of 50,000 people, but Banksy says only 1,000 Palestine posters will be distributed each day.
Considering the virality Banksy accumulated from the recent shredding stunt, you can bet there won’t be enough free artworks to go around.
Thankfully, the street artist has made the poster available to download or print for free via banksy.co.uk, so even if you can’t be there at the exhibition, you’ll still be able to own a Banksy artwork—which has the potential to run in the millions, mind you.
The print, headed with the text, “Visit historic Palestine,” spoofs tourism posters, and comes with a deceivingly optimistic slogan: “The Israeli army liked it so much they never left!” You can download it here.
