This artist put Trump quotes on sexist ads from the 1950s and it’s frighteningly realistic
Make America Misogynistic Again
Saint Hoax is a pseudonymous Syrian artist, satirist and sociopolitical activist. His latest project takes vintage, sexist ads from the 1950s and printed them with real things that Donald Trump has said about women in the past.
Speaking to the Independent about the project Saint Hoax explained: “As I was researching those ads, I couldn’t stop comparing them to Trump’s sexist remarks about women.
“I decided to match the visuals with sexist Trump quotes and turn them into an awareness/art project that would be published on International Women’s Day.
“The way women are represented in the media has shifted drastically since these advertisements were initially published. Sadly, Donald Trump is trying to take America back to the ‘Mad Men’ era.”
The result of his project is a frightening realistic blast from the past. Saint Hoax added: “I’m hoping that these posters would make people realize that Trump’s ‘locker room talk’ is extremely dangerous especially now since he is the president of the United States and he’s ‘supposed’ to be representing one of the most feminist countries in the world.”
