Barbara Kruger’s never really talked about Supreme, the skate company who’s been ripping off her ideas and prints letter for letter, color for color, for their red-and-white logo, which you have seen, because it is everywhere.
I emailed her casually to ask her about this. And today, she got back to me, and gave a candid statement on the matter of Supreme for the first time, ever, really. By emailing me a blank email, with an attachment. Which you can see above.
I can’t believe it’s taken this long for Barbara Kruger to be asked about Supreme, but actually, why not, I am sure she does not normally concern herself with the aesthetics of snapback hats.
