Washing your hands for/of climate change
John Lennon returned his MBE in 1969 to make a political statement about Britain's involvement in 'the Nigeria-Biafra thing'. A year earlier, arch-feminist Shulamith Firestone binned her bra for sexism. Now, a piece by the artist David Kennedy-Cutler has resurfaced to draw attention to the (recently-downgraded) plight of Antarctica using, errr, Antarctica-shaped soap.
'Here, soap expresses the washing away of Antarctica,' explains the Artful Green Dot blog. But Kennedy-Cutler, who created the artwork in 2006, is quite clear that 'I don't consider myself an eco artist'.
