For an ongoing guerrilla art project called Goldenroach Hungarian designer and visual artist Miklós Kiss, aka kissmiklos, has been smuggling 14-carat gold-plated bronze cockroaches into museums across Europe, making them part of the. Since 2011 Kiss has secretly placed his roaches inside the Tate Modern, Tate Britain, the British Museum, MUMOK, Hamburger Bahnhof, Centre Pompidou and the Louvre. In addition to sneaking his golden roaches into the galleries themselves, he also places the matching Goldenroach souvenir postcards into the museum gift shops.
On March 25, 2014 Kiss traveled to the US and successfully placed his roaches inside the Museum of Modern Art in New York. That same month the Goldenroach project went from guerrilla art to featured exhibition, entitled Goldenroach Unlimited, at the M0 project space of the Műcsarnok / Kunsthalle in Budapest. There Kiss exhibited a massive assembly of 12,000 plastic Goldenroaches along with one 14-carat gold roach hidden among the the plastic horde. Visitor were even invited to take one plastic Goldenroach home with them.
