Book Review: How Racism Takes Place by George Lipsitz

Book Review: How Racism Takes Place by George Lipsitz

Ratings: (0)|Views: 376|Likes:
For his 1970 piece Injustice Case, African American artist David Hammons covered himself in margarine and pressed his body against a large sheet of paper. He sprinkled the resulting impression with black powder to reveal a human silhouette sitting bound and gagged, seemingly caged inside the American flag that serves as a frame, its stripes turned vertical like prison bars. As the grease on the paper evaporates over time, the image – a reference to the trial of Black Panther Bobby Seale in 1969 – fades as well, becoming even more poignant as it disappears.
