“Love is in the bin”: Banksy picture auctioned for 20 million francs

Three years ago, the British artist «Banksy» turned the art world upside down once more. No sooner had his famous painting “Girl with a Balloon” been auctioned for around 1.4 million francs than it destroyed itself. It shredded itself through its own frame.

Today the picture that was actually destroyed was auctioned again. And went for 16 million pounds, the equivalent of more than 20 million francs, to an unknown buyer. That’s fifteen times more than the picture cost three years ago. It also has a new name: “Love is in the Bin” – in German: Love is in the trash.
