The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao’s Sustainable Banners

Shifting toward a more sustainable world requires radical change: structural reconfiguration of supply chains, pivoting from harsh chemicals and single-use plastics and beyond. The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao’s newest banner ad campaign for their upcoming exhibition, Olafur Eliasson: In Real Life, proves that these changes can also be remarkably subtle. All 250 of the banners act as air-purifiers capable of catching and cleaning volatile components. The printed materials are coated in Pureti Print, a clear elixir that “induces photocatalysis, a chemical reaction triggered by sunlight, using oxygen and water vapor to combat air pollutants like nitrogen and sulfur oxides, as well as bacteria and mold,” Condé Nast Traveler writes.
