BOOK OF FEAR

Pop Up Book for the Berlin University of Arts
RB 2010/2011

The ‘Book of Fear’ refers to Septimus Winners
original children’s rhyme ‘Ten Little Injuns’. A controversial song that was translated into many languages,
often misused within a xenophobic context. Only a year after the original song was published Injuns turned into ‘niggers’ and the rest its history.

I exchanged the ‘Ten Little Niggers’ with the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Criminals.
Terrorists in children’s books seemed like an appropriate epilogue.
