Colombia-Marlboro<br />

Antonio Caro, Colombia-Marlboro, 1975

Antonio Caro's Colombia-Marlboro features the basic design elements of a Marlboro cigarette packet, with "Colombia" written instead of the cigarette brand. Caro is not just critical of the U.S. consumer culture engulfing Colombia, but also the influence of U.S. imperialism on the development of Colombia's national identity.
