Bad Barbie, published to accompany a show of David Levinthal s photographs of the same name, reproduces 25 black and white images the artist made in his early experiments shooting toys. Arranged in a loose narrative sequence the photographs depict the commercially ubiquitous dolls, Barbie, her boyfriend Ken, and G.I. Joe, in a series of poses and tableaux of sexual liaison and activity. The young artist was responding to a contemporary atmosphere of new sexual license enjoyed by youthful America following the liberal-leaning social upheavals of the 1960s. With eleven pages of text featuring an introductory note by Richard Prince and a racy narrative fiction by John McWhinnie. This hard cover edition is limited to just 500 copies.

About the Author:

David Levinthal's photographs have been widely shown and reproduced in books over the past 20 years. He typically trains his camera on toys and miniature models, often producing culturally incendiary results peculiarly at odds with the apparently safe material photographed.
