Artist Barbara Kruger Responds to the Supreme Lawsuit

Yesterday news of the “Supreme Bitch” lawsuit between NYC labels Supreme and Married To The Mob hit the web, and has since had the streetwear community up in arms. Whatever your opinion may be of Supreme, MTTM or the case as a whole, one constant remains – and that is the fact that Supreme’s red-and-white box logo is in fact a play on the artwork of Barbara Kruger.

Having sat silent on the matter for many years, the American conceptual artist herself has allegedly come forward to issue a statement on her connection to Supreme, Married To The Mob and, most importantly, appropriation as a whole. Complex says they received a blank email from Kruger today with the document shown above as an attachment.

Yes, it seems as though the UCLA professor is calling out Supreme and MTTM as “a ridiculous clusterfuck of uncool jokers.”
