Chanel Paris Shanghai

Despite defensive assertions by, among many others, Carine Roitfeld, Tyra Banks, and now Lagerfeld that racial performances by white models/actors is “avant-garde” and “post-racial,” such performances are ridiculously retrograde and reproduce historical racial hierarchies in which white bodies (imagined as racially-unmarked and thus universal) are superior to racially-marked bodies.

Einen schlauen und fundierten Artikel zu Chanels neuester Fantasie: Paris-Shanghai und den Verbindung zu Orientalismus und, letzten Endes, Rassismus, hat Minh-Ha T. Pham auf threadbared veröffentlicht.
