In the piece "Die Burger" by the Broooklyn-based artist collective The Bruce High Quality Foundation at Art Basel Miami Beach, the "meat" is made of felt, the "cheese" is lard, and the "buns" are from Burger King. The video on the screen is a reworking of the video of Andy Warhol eating a hamburger. According to their mission statement, the BHQF aspires to "invest the experience of public space with wonder, to resurrect art history from the bowels of despair, and to impregnate the institutions of art with the joy of man’s desiring."
