Activists Erect World’s Biggest Dick in London’s Financial District

June 10, 2013 | Julia Dawidowicz

Being the simple peasants that we are, we sometimes forget that we’re constantly being screwed by the big ol’ dicks who caused the global financial crisis. As a not-so-subtle reminder, British interventionist group Shift//Delete transformed the Gherkin building, an emblem of London’s financial district, into the world’s tallest penis.

Aptly nicknamed Jerkin the Gherkin, Act of Parliament provided Londoners with a neon projected hand job light show — symbolic of Parliament’s habir of gratifying corrupt bankers, rather than challenging them.

In response to this reality, we have turned the Gherkin into the worlds tallest dick – a 180m high erection for deregulation and global capitalism. We have created this art work for all those that are suffering cuts to budgets, public services, benefits, rights, libraries, freedoms and quality of life as Parliament perpetuates the age old practice of taxing the poor for the mistakes of the rich.
