DEAR WHITE MALE ARTIST08 July 2019, Pepino
Some people have kindly advised me that as a European straight white cis male artist I'm not entitled to criticize certain things like racism, colonialism and misogyny. I painted Donald Duck (he's very white) as a painter listing themes he shouldn't touch with the brush.
I assume that we the white males are responsible of most of the horrors of the world. However, I think that the oppressed should work with progressive people form the privileged groups to overthrow the reactionary patriarchy. Wouldn´t you accept to collaborate with a dissident in the Third Reich just because he's German?
I still believe in the marxist idea of class. The social class defines us more than the color of the skin or gender. An African prole has more in common with white trash trailer park park working poor has more in common than with Oprah. But of course Marx was a white man like myself.
