Superbarbara: Animation project


Superbarbara Saving the World is a hand drawn animation reflecting on recurrent problems in the world that are never solved. Different 'episodes' in the animation refer to different problems - each is instantly and universally recognisable not only because they are found everywhere, but because everywhere there is the same frustration for anyone who attempts to solve them.  Sometimes, there is someone showing up and trying to fix those problems, but sooner or later our so called 'Hero' just disappears and the troubles are still going on. What happened and Why?”

Superbarbara is an old-style sex doll transformed from sex toy to savior of the world. She has her own way to solve problems. However, Superbarbara is both hero and victim of the problems. The animation reflects on how we handle the world around us. 
Superbarbara Saving the world started in 2011. The work has continuously created since then. Now, the project consists of 11 episodes:Cross, The Thinker, Blowing Job, Respirator, Meditation on Water, When the time comes and Feeding the poor, The plant, Strategic Defense Initiative, Reading Out Loud, Giving and Taking.
