‘Defeated’ Souvenir Wall Section dioramas & key fobs by Banksy for #WalledOff Hotel
And while I've previously featured the "Walled Off" Hotel launch itself (circa 2017), now we've learnt the online shop has since listed up some Banksy-merch!
Beyond the Tees, Tote Bag, Mug and Postcards, here's a look at "‘Defeated’ Souvenir Wall Section" miniature diorama sets (x 3 designs), polymer resin key fobs and Souvenir Wall Sections!
Note that everything listed here are available IN-SHOP ONLY, so you'll have to travel down to '182 Caritas Street, Bethlehem, Palestine' to score them, or pay secondary market prices online.
WHERE-IS: "The gift shop is situated towards the back of the hotel and sells items created exclusively for the Walled Off by Banksy. It should not be confused with the ‘Banksy Shop’ next door – which has nothing to do with Banksy at all. All profits from sales go towards sustaining the hotel and social projects. Select items are available worldwide on mail order."
WHAT-IS: "Just in case you weren’t sure what Banksy thinks about the wall (not a fan) his latest range of ‘souvenir collectables’ anticipate the day the concrete menace has been defeated and feral youth scribble on its skeletal remains. For those of you concerned that making glorified tourist tat from military oppression is ethically dubious – there is at least the solace that each wall is lovingly hand painted by craftspeople in the local area."
KEY FOB: "A miniature reproduction of the hotel’s iconic electronic key fobs. Made from enhanced polymer resin. Available in store only. NIS 90 / hand painted with figure NIS 230."
SOUVENIR WALL SECTION (SMALL): "A mini stretch of separation wall decorated with recreations of well-loved graffiti. Lovingly hand painted by local craftspeople.
Available in store only, prices starting from NIS 450."
SOUVENIR WALL SECTION (LARGE): "Same as the other one, but a bit bigger. Available in store only, prices starting from NIS 750."
