What's the story behind Barbie?

Updated: Nov 7, 2023


What’s the story behind Barbie?

I was always fascinated by the “story behind the scenes”and intrigued by the trap of misleading appearances.

That’s the reason I love expressing through my art with abstract concepts removing all the frameworks in search of ways of redefining already expired “status quo” models.

Like a ”human nature“ necessity we have this tendency to add labels in everything,

careless of their consequences.

How much power can be hidden behind the intention of “name tag” manipulation?

Obviously enough power to transform a simple toy- doll to a symbol of a distorted image which could influence destructively, generations of young women, instead of highlighting empowering messages.

What’s the story behind Barbie?

I have a feeling that it started differently but it got mutated with a deliberate guided plan.

I always make a conscious effort to ignore the instructions on the box cause nothing has meaning until we give it one.
