Monument

BP or not BP? are an art activist group focusing on encouraging our cultural and creative industries to divest and cut all ties with fossil fuel companies such as British Petroleum (BP). They do this through the process of using performativity and creativity to subvert the neoliberal  and neocolonial forces perpetuating inequality and pushing us faster towards extinction. By exploring the intersections between art and politics, of performance and civil disobedience, BP or not BP?  work towards extinguishing destructive petrochemical forces that exploit, extract and destroy people and planet for profit.

Monument was part of #BPmustfall, a 3-day performative protest and occupation of the British Museum with particular focus on the Troy: Myth or Reality.

"This is horribly appropriate: we’re sick of the oil industry using our arts and culture as a Trojan Horse to hide its deadly activities. BP’s sponsorship may look like a gift, but death and destruction are lurking inside. The oil giant wants to associate itself with this famous myth but in reality, just 75 miles from the site of ancient Troy, it recently completed an enormous gas pipeline in partnership with the repressive Turkish government, locking us into using more fossil fuels when we should be ditching them."
