Banksy’s ‘Crazy Horse’ On the Lower East Side for “Better Out Than In”
Bold and daring as ever, Banksy once again explores the world of militaristic warfare with his latest piece for “Better Out Than In.” Following this weekend’s “Rebel Rocket Attack” video, the new piece – unofficially dubbed Crazy Horse – appears on Manhattan’s Lower East Side and depicts military soldiers as a group of crazed, night vision-donning horses. Further adding to the piece is the corresponding “audio guide”: in this case, directly lifted from an infamous 2007 Eastern Baghdad-set video – brought to the public’s eye via WikiLeaks – that sees an Apache helicopter firing upon a group of unarmed civilians. In conjunction with previous works, Banksy’s stance on not only the war in Iraq, but military intervention in general, is more than clear.
