King Kong Issue 16 / Dread Scott


Out of stock



Revolution, evolution, resolution…

Dread Scott deals with the reality of political statements in his artworks. It’s using language – ironically- to highlight the paradoxes in the way American capitalism can use us and abuse us, sometimes when we don’t realise it. His art is there to make us open our eyes, see things differently and to make us think. It’s angry, but it comes from a good place, a desire and commitment to make society more equal. He puts America on trial – and the verdict seems clear.

“I have hope for the future. I don’t have hope for America. I don’t like America. In fact, I kind of hate America. I think it’s caused tremendous harm. Since its inception. It was a country founded on slavery and genocide. I mean, they wiped out whole peoples and then brought a labour force to work on the land that they colonized and stole, and it’s a country that’s based on exploitation and oppression.”
