Rebekah Modrak


Rebekah Modrak is an artist and writer whose practice is at the intersections of art, activism, critical design, and creative resistance to consumer culture. She creates Internet-based interventions, such as Re Made Co., an artwork posing as an online company that recreates actual company, Best Made Co. (specializing in $350 designer axes), to satirize their appropriation of manual labor for leisure consumption and perpetuation of aggressive male roles. Her artwork RETHINK SHINOLA exposes Shinola’s co-option of Detroit’s image and its promotion of the White savior myth. Modrak is Professor of Art in the Stamps School of Art & Design at the University of Michigan.
