"ART MARVEL SURVIVAL KIT" by Janine Mackenroth

For Kunstnothilfe, artist Janine Mackenroth created a suit for an "Art Marvel Heroine": by means of magnetic buttons, it can be extended with artworks. Dressed in this way, a social sculpture is created equipped with art made of nail polish, a Money Gun - loaded with biographies of women in art in Germany, a signet ring for women in art and the publication "I Love Women in Art" on the occasion of this year's 100th anniversary of women at German art academies.

This "ART MARVEL SURVIVAL KIT" is intended to support women artists in several ways: with visibility of different art personalities, a wealth of knowledge and the proceeds from the sale of the suit for emergency art aid.

The suit remains washable without the artworks and thus suitable for everyday use - the silver magnetic rivets define a consistent pattern of lines on the blazer and trousers without the artworks.

The three artworks themselves can also be installed as artworks at the same time - with self-adhesive magnets supplied for the wall.

TECHNIQUE

Janine Mackenroth used nail polish, which she applied to the Tencel blazer by flowing it on her own. The pouring of gallons of expensive nail polish is a self-conscious emergence in the art world, a poured-out feminism on canvas.
