Here’s Dasha Zhukova Sitting on a Black Woman That’s a Chair

January 21, 2014 | Marina Galperina

Yesterday, oligarch mom, socialite and pretend art person Dasha Khukova has been featured in an editorial on a Russian site Bruno 247, highlighting her achievements in the art world and as editor of Garage Magazine. Also, her taste in art furniture, apparently. The editorial photograph shows Dasha Zhukova eloquently nested upon a chair made to look like a bound black woman in lingerie with her high heels up in the air.

Following outrage from blogs and larger outlets — as well as the majority of the commenters on the post — the photo was removed today.

The new version of the photo now only features the cropped tips of boot-clad legs whose race is not as easily identifiable but still fits in with Dasha’s photographer’s whole black and white composition-contrast thing or whatever else possessed them to think this was a good idea in the first place in any way.
