If you had a coat of arms, what would be on it?
Zizek: How do you call that sign when you stick your finger up? Giving the bird. And maybe some communist symbols, a hammer and sickle. But in the middle, a big finger sticking up.


Feminist Art Friday Feature: Wangechi Mutu

Kenyan artist Wangechi Mutu uses her work to explore race, politics, and gender through a variety of mediums such as video, sculpture, and collage. Born in Nairobi, Kenya, Mutu moved to the United States for college in the 1990s. She went on to earn an MFA in sculpture from Yale. Matu now lives and works in Brooklyn, where her work was recently on display in a major exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum. 

According to the Brooklyn Museum:

Mutu scrutinizes globalization by combining found materials, magazine cutouts, sculpture, and painted imagery. Sampling such diverse sources as African traditions, international politics, the fashion industry, pornography, and science fiction, her work explores gender, race, war, colonialism, global consumption, and the exoticization of the black female body. Mutu is best known for spectacular and provocative collages depicting female figures—part human, animal, plant, and machine—in fantastical landscapes that are simultaneously unnerving and alluring, defying easy categorization and identification. Bringing her interconnected ecosystems to life for this exhibition through sculptural installations and videos, Mutu encourages audiences to consider these mythical worlds as places for cultural, psychological, and socio-political exploration and transformation.
