Herr Collaborates with Kraska at Elijah Wheat Showroom in “Moll Madness”

Joseph Kraska’s trippy queer video series Peppré Ann and Froends returns with a new episode. This time, the girls are going shopping. But instead of typical consumer schlock and Orange Julius, they’re going to be exposed to the harsh, bizarre reality of the suburban mall (“moll”) as a privatized public space, where the logic of capitalism rules over free speech or the right to congregate. This all-too-real dystopian nightmare will be brought to life through an installation in collaboration with Johannah Herr (Sculpture ’16). In the gallery, viewers can browse chain-store garments modified with slogans from the Women’s March on Washington and fabric prints that reference the militarized police presence used to suppress protesters.  The exhibition is open through April 16 at Elijah Wheat Showroom.
