Artist Swaps The Names Of Cities And Towns Around The World With 1,800 Cultural Slurs To Create ‘Map Of The Stereotypes’

 

 

'The Map of the Stereotypes': Slovak graphic design artist Martin Vargic has re-imagined the world according to cultural slurs, assumptions and stereotypes, with obvious choices like China becoming 'Factory', Australia 'Kangaroo' and Italy 'Pizza', as well more questionable ones, such as Spain as 'Pubes' and Canada 'Maple Syrup'<br>

” Everything you need to know about the world is right here, according to graphic design artist Martin Vargic.
The Slovak student, who made a name for himself earlier this year with his ‘Map of the Internet’, has followed up that effort with ‘Map of the Stereotypes’, a detailed reworking of countries, cities and towns the world over to reflect the countless cultural generalizations and assumptions.”

” Vargic took three months to configure the vintage-style base world map on Photoshop, with two additional months of research for the labels, for which there are said to be 1,800 in total.

‘ The majority of stereotypes are basically oversimplications, and though they are based on a real phenomenon, it is wrong to associate them with the entire country, nation, race or other group of people,’ Vargic told The MailOnline.

‘ When looking on the map, it needs to be understood that it shows the world from the point of view of a stereotypical westerner, making it a stereotype itself, the manifestation of the stereotype about the entire western world.”

 

 

 

 Epic detail: The map is said to feature over 1,800 stereotypes. Vargic renamed Mongolia 'Genghis Khahn' after the founder of the Mongol Empire, while China became 'Factory, India 'Holy Cow', Pakistan 'Al-Qaeda' and Afghanistan 'Terrorists'

” Vargic renamed each country to a stereotype he believes best represents that nation.

  Some are obvious, such as called Russie ‘Communists’, Turkey ‘Kebab’, Australia ‘Kangaroo’, Italy ‘Pizza’ and China ‘Factory’.

  While others are much more questionable, with Canada becoming ‘Maple Syrup’ and Span ‘Pubes’.
Ireland became ‘Gingers’, Sweden ‘Metrosexuals’, Colombia ‘Cocaine’ and Korea ‘Bad Drivers’.”

 

 

 

    Regular readers will recall some of Mr Vargic’s previous works such as his beautiful map of the internet and the world as seen with the polar ice caps melted .

What If Famous Paintings Were Photoshopped to Look Like Fashion Models?

 

 

Sandro Botticelli, Birth of Venus, 1486

 

 

” Whether it’s tucking tummies, contouring jaw lines, enlarging eyes and lips, brushing out cellulite, or full-out head swapping, I’ve seen it all as a photo editor. While the conversation about the media’s portrayal and obsession with an unrealistic and unattainable beauty standard is not a new one, I think it’s crazy how much retouching people don’t notice. Over the last five years, having done many of the quick, subtle fixes that are the industry standard myself, I know that even an image considered to look “natural” is anything but.

  Of course it hasn’t always been that way. Throughout art history, painters from Titian to Rubens to Gauguin found beauty in the bodies of women who would never fit into a size 0. But what would these famous works of art look like were they to conform to today’s Photoshopped standards of beauty? We’ve taken a digital liquefy brush to the painstakingly layered oils of some of the most celebrated paintings of the female form, nipping and tucking at will. There may be something sacrilegious in that, but the same could be said for our contemporary ideas of beauty.

  Is their another classic work of art you’d like to see photoshopped to meet today’s beauty standards? Email Lauren your ideas.”

 

 

   An interesting project that does more to highlight the absurdity of today’s fixation on skinny than perhaps the artist expected . See the others here at Take Part.

RWN Milwaukee War On Dogs

For the doubters and excuse makers read this from RealClearPolitics

” Police officers receive extensive training about the use of force when it is applied against humans. But how many departments provide training on dealing with pets? Very few, says the Humane Society. This despite the fact that, according to a Justice Department paper (“The Problem of Dog-Related Incidents and Encounters”), 39 percent of U.S. homes have dogs.

  More than half of dog owners “consider their dogs family members,” it continues, “and another 45.1 percent view them as companions or pets.” Less than 1.5 percent view them as property.

  Do we really need systematic training to combat a few isolated incidents, however unfortunate? The question rests on a false premise. Civil liberties writer Radley Balko notes that over a nine-year period, Milwaukee officers killed 434 dogs — about one every eight days. And that’s just one city. Across the country, according to Justice, “the majority of (police) shooting incidents involve animals, most frequently dogs.”

  But surely those shootings occur because the animals themselves pose a serious threat, right? Nope. The Justice Department says not only that “dogs are seldom dangerous” but that even when they are, “the overwhelming majority of dog bites are minor, causing either no injury at all or injuries so minor that no medical care is required.” “

Dems Blast Breitbart Over Pelosi Image

 

 

PELOSI TWERK

 

 

 

” The Democratic National Committee on Monday blasted Breitbart News for its portrayal of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in artwork promoting the launch of the company’s new California bureau.

  DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) called on Republicans to condemn the artwork and urge the conservative outlet to remove the ad, which superimposes Pelosi’s head on a bikini-clad body, with her tongue hanging out.

“ If GOP leaders are serious about their rebrand, then both their elected and Party leadership should condemn this outrageous behavior, call on Breitbart News to immediately remove the ad, and not continue to use this website as a forum for their views,” Wasserman Schultz said in a statement.”

 

 

   “Tasteless and undignified” is something the Dems know well . It’s not as though they have never played this game …

 Michelle Bachmann has been a repeated target and we fail to recall any outrage from the Left in this or any other case regarding her treatment , see below

   And of course no woman has had more abuse heaped on her by the “mainstream” media than Sarah Palin and again the Progressive outrage was nowhere to be found …

   The silence was is deafening whenever liberal fav Bill Maher opens his trap to display his ignorance with some sexist diatribe or other , which happens pretty much monthly .

    For a truly comprehensive accounting of the culture of hate engendered by the Left over the past decade and a half you cannot beat this article from Michelle Malkin:
