MOCO Amsterdam - Banksy: Laugh Now

The Banksy exhibition contains around 50 original works by Street Art legend Banksy.
Moco museum has all his iconic works on display, like Laugh Now, Barcode, Girl with Balloon, Kids on Guns, Pulp Fiction, Flower Thrower, Monkey Queen, Kate Moss, Bomb Hugger, Soup Can and many more. The centerpiece of the exhibition is the Beanfield painting, which measures 2.5 x 3.5 meters. Though it has not been on display since 2009, Beanfield is an important piece as it emphasizes Banksy’s activist nature.
Banksy is well known for his outdoor art which can be found in streets all around the world. London even has maps marking the locations where you can find his pieces, many of which are monitored against vandalism. Banksy’s indoor pieces – original and unique works on canvas, wood and paper – have so far been less exposed.
You will now find these indoor pieces, on loan from collectors, at Moco. As an addition, we even have a few pieces that were rescued from the rubble of torn down buildings.
