Beni Bischof, Architecture in the stranglehold of the art
Don’t you tire of those Sponsored ads seen to the right of your Facebook profile page? Those intriguing thumbnail images that pique one’s interest – then once clicked, are nowhere to be found?
Today I saw the recurring East Bay Bucket List Facebook Sponsord ad (below right) and immediately recognized one of Swiss artist Beni Bischof‘s artworks (below left), “HANDICAPED CAR” (verschiedene Formate, 2008/09). What on earth does that image have to do with with the East Bay Bucket List and 365 things to do in the East Bay right now? Is this misrepresentation on the part of livingsocial[ly].com? The site misleads by scouring my photos and photos of my friends on Facebook to sell their product which in turn have nothing to do with the product being sold.
