Exit through the Gift Shop (2010) by Banksy is a V-Movie in the sense that it presents art as any other kind of product. This protest is also highlighted in the title: museums are today a part of the consumerism and has no other value.

However, this movie has many dimensions. Nevertheless, this movie pinpoints, in a hilarious way, the rather strange relations we have with art in the western tradition.

Live version of the title track "Tonight The Streets Are Ours" released on Richard Hawley's album Lady's Bridge (2007).

Those people, they got nothing in their souls
And they make our TVs blind us
From our vision and our goals
Oh the trigger of time it tricks you
So you have no way to grow
