Fascinated by a work of street art/propaganda seen Sunday in Brooklyn, somewhere near Barclays Center stadium.
Full size view: seems like the silhouette of a bear balancing on a ball. All made out of handwritten words. Papered over by a few other posters.
The words in black are Fuck the Circus written obsessively, backwards and forwards.
Sometimes the words extend in other directions as well, as seen in this detail of the shoulder area.
The claws are delineated in tinier words.
The ball switches colors – now green and white – as well as text. It now reads Circus is Slavery.

Work we want, MIEL, “difficult, interesting, intelligent, deeply felt | supplies for readers and writers”
We want a bright pink language, a gold language, a deep blue language and a stark one.
