Deconstructing racism!!! Understanding complexities!!! (2014)

In this work, I deconstruct a seemingly innocent anonymous question I received asking “Where are you from bc your skin color is like different, I love it!” to speak to the complexities and pervasiveness of racism. I’m interested in revealing how deeply rooted racism is. I want to speak to issues such as cultural appropriation, white supremacy, the sexism + racism navigated by WoC and the exclusion of WoC in feminist discourse, the lack of positive representation for brown and black people, and other similar sentiments.

This work is still in progress, and will result in a performance taking place in December 2014.
