Gay Russian Artist Responds To Garage Magazine’s Racist ‘Black Woman’ Chair With NSFW Image

A gay artist from Russia has created a flipped image in response to the controversial photo of Garage Magazine’s white, female editor-in-chief sitting on a “black woman” chair.

The Russian editor-in-chief of Garage magazine, Dasha Zhukova, came under fire for an editorial photo showing her seated atop a chair designed to look like a black woman with a belt around her waist and thighs and her legs up in the air.

The photo, which offended many, began circulating on Monday, Jan. 20, which was Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Zhukova eventually apologized and called the decision to appear with such a racially insensitive piece of art “regrettable.” She also reasoned that designer Bjarne Melgaard’s actual intent was a “commentary on gender and racial politics.”

But, some did not find the apology sufficient.
