Oct 23, 2022 | Political News

In the latest act of vandalism against famous works of art, climate activists on Sunday threw mashed potatoes on Claude Monet’s Les Meules painting at Potsdam’s Barberini museum in Germany, and then glued themselves to the floor.

The two protestors were from the group Letzte Generation, or Last Generation, and wrote on Twitter, “We make this #Monet the stage and the public the audience. If it takes a painting – with #MashedPotatoes or #TomatoSoup thrown at it – to make society remember that the fossil fuel course is killing us all: Then we'll give you #MashedPotatoes on a painting!”
