In Protected content , world-renowned street artist Banksy went to Palestine to paint protest graffiti on walls, including a piece depicting an Israeli soldier checking a donkey’s ID in Bethlehem. Some locals took offense at being portrayed as donkeys. A local Palestinian taxi driver and bodybuilder known as “Walid the Beast” decided to cut out the offending graffiti and sell it to the highest bidder on eBay. What follows is a story of clashing cultures, art, identity, theft, and the black market. From art dealers to private collectors and even fellow street artists, everyone has a different take on whether this is theft, preservation, or strictly commerce. Featuring narration by legendary punk pioneer Iggy Pop.
