Pierre Bennu: Black Moses Barbie
March 02, 2011
Black Moses Barbie commercial #2 of 3 from pierre bennu on Vimeo.
This video contains many of my favorite elements: progressive politics, dolls and deconstruction of images and fakery. Wow.
"This mock commercial for a Black Moses Barbie toy is the 2nd in a series of 3 celebrating the legacy of Harriet Tubman. It is part of Pierre Bennu's larger series of paintings and films deconstructing and re-envisioning images of people of color in commercial & pop culture."
