In hindsight, i think we'll remember 2019 for two things...

The year that everyone started:

  • pretending to like Frida Kahlo
  • repeatedly using the term ‘deep dive’.

Really good artist

I thought it was her but why did everyone start to pretend to like her this year? Hasn’t she been loved for a very long time?
I’m still confused… :thinking:

I think bugduv’s having a senior moment :wink:

Oh, man. Nearly 2 decades ago. That was probably an old person thing to say wasn’t it.

Frida Kahlo has been ‘popular’/heavily merchandised for aeons by this point, the backlash of people pointing out the irony of someone who was fiercely communist and anti-Western (maybe even anti-white) becoming a lazily picked pop culture icon has come in waves and usually fallen on deaf ears.

In summary: Ché Guevara 2.0, This Time It’s ‘Feminist’

(lazy on my part to compare Ché and Frida, of course, but they share the unique experience of being completely misrepresented and commodified)

Often find myself hate-trawling Cool Parent Instagram™ and Frida Kahlo was quite a popular Halloween ‘choice’ for toddlers this year.

A major Frida Kahlo retrospective opened at the V&A in June 2018.

The blockbuster exhibition attracted 284,420 visitors and had to be extended by two weeks because of its popularity.

I don’t understand why people are getting so upset.
