more from the duo:
“Disorientalism’s preoccupation with junk culture translates into junk food, as Ready Mix stirs up the story of Aunt Jemima’s century-long makeover from “slave mammy” to “modern working mother.” This project is the second chapter of The Food Groups, a five-part series focusing on race and labor in American food production and promotion. One-by-one, the Disorientals will encounter five historical food industry characters: Wendy of… Wendy’s Old Fashioned Hamburgers, Aunt Jemima, Land O’Lakes’ Indian Maiden, Sun-Maid, and Chiquita Banana. In their encounters with these iconic identities, the duo undertakes efforts to erase the distinction between the depersonalized production and the personalized promotion of industrial food.”
