Banksy Teams Up With Danny Boyle For The Alternativity
World renowned street artist, Banksy, has filmed an alternative nativity with film director Danny Boyle at the Walled Off Hotel in Bethlehem.
Challenging the global elite, politics, religion, racism and poverty are just some of the issues we have seen brought to life by the Bristol born street artist Banksy. Back in March this year, Banksy announced the opening of The Walled Of Hotel located on the notorious West Bank Barrier, which divides Palestine & Israel. Now teaming up with the director Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slum Dog Millionaire & Steve Jobs), Banksy has created The Alternativity, which sets out to challenge the traditional nativity story in context with ongoing world affairs.
Banksy’s Alternativity has also been filmed as part of a documentary for BBC Two (UK), which will be shown on Sunday 17th December 2017 at 9pm. Banksy has also created two new artwork pieces to tie in with The Alternativity, the first features the words ‘Peace on Earth’ along with a star as an asterisk and ‘Terms & Conditions Apply’. The second piece depicts two cherubic angels trying to open two panels of the West Bank wall which is where the Walled Off Hotel is situated.
