Climate activists spray mummy showcase at museum

In Barcelona, ​​climate activists sprayed a display case with a replica of a mummy. They stuck to the show.

Climate activists pour colored liquid over a glass case containing a mummy replica at Barcelona’s Egyptian Museum. News website Público reported that on Sunday, the images were sprayed on nearby walls with a viscous substance from Coca-Cola bottles. They then taped their hands to the demonstration and held up a banner that read “Climate Justice.”

Employees of Spanish group Futuro Vegetal have not been arrested. However, the museum has announced that it will sue for damages. According to their own statement, the activists wanted to draw attention to the climate emergency through their action.

Criticism of Coca-Cola

The US company Coca-Cola is one of the sponsors of COP27, the UN climate conference in Egypt. Environmentalists have criticized it, blaming the company for most of the world’s plastic pollution

“Currently, 99 percent of the world’s plastics are made from fossil fuels,” explains Futuro Vegetal. “We find it hard to believe that the world leader in combating plastic pollution will not use its influence as a COP27 sponsor to advance its commercial interests.”

Futuro Vegetal workers had already glued themselves to paintings by Baroque master Francisco de Goya at Madrid’s Prado Museum on November 5. For weeks now, climate activists have been holding similar protests in art museums around the world.

In recent months, climate activists have attacked paintings by Vincent van Gogh and Claude Monet. Johannes Vermeer’s “Girl with a Pearl Earring” in The Hague has also been the target of protests. As all the damaged artworks were behind glass, they were intact. However, historical frames are also highly valuable and sensitive.
