‘Puppetry’s Racial Reckoning’: UConn spends $3k to expose racial bias in puppetry
The art of puppetry is a history of racism.
That assessment is the takeaway from the Fall Puppet Forum Series, a string of talks at the University of Connecticut, an program that accompanies the university’s Ballard Institute and Museum Puppetry’s exhibition, Puppetry’s Racial Reckoning.
University of Connecticut spokeswoman Stephanie Reitz told Campus Reform that in addition to consultations with various faculty throughout the university, staff spent $3,000 on creating the display spaces.
University of Connecticut student Isadore Johnson questioned the value of that appropriation when speaking to Campus Reform.
“Although I think puppetry’s racial reckoning is of dubious value,” Johnson said. “I also question the importance of the taxpayers supporting puppetry museums in general.”
“Exhibiting Racism in Museums” was the October 14 installment in the discussion series, during which speakers discussed stereotypes they claim are perpetuated in the art form.
