The November 2011 issue of Art In America magazine features a four-page review, with multiple illustrations, of Marianne Kinkel’s new book Races of Mankind: The Sculptures of Malvina Hoffman.
The book traces Hoffman’s sculptures from their their 1933 debut and nearly four decades at the Field Museum to numerous reuses, repackagings, reproductions, and publications that reached across the world.
“A provocative new study. . . . Kinkel shows how the images contributed to a contentious and mutating discourse on race through the end of the 20th century.”-Sue Taylor, Art in America
