 Dara Birnbaum
«MTV Artbreak»

Produced for an «Artbreak» segment on MTV Network, this dynamic «thirty-second spot» presents an abbreviated history of animation according to the representation of women, from the cellimagery of Max Fleischer's «Out of the Inkwell» series to the contemporary digital effects of television. With wit and panache, Birnbaum reverses the traditional sexual roles of the producer and the product of commercial imagery.
