Created for the exhibition Bra- participation - 100 years BH.
Will be shipped in a wooden box.
On February 12, 1914, the American Mary Phelps Jacob applied for a patent for a lightweight and backless bra in the US, which was granted to her on November 3 of the same year.
In 1917, when US presidential adviser Bernhard Baruch called on American women to make their political contributions by releasing "war-critical material" and switching to this fuel-efficient model, the BH supplanted the corset and began its triumphal march around the world. Today, the bra is considered a sign of freedom, self-determination and emancipation of women. On the occasion of the 100th birthday of the brassiere, the artist and designer Ursula Pahnke-Felder launched the art project "braparticipation". 54 international, professional artists confronted the artistic confrontation with a commercial brassiere and created 66 works of art. The BEGAS HAUS, Museum Heinsberg shows as the last stop a lot of these partly humorous, partly critical objects of the project: "bra - participation".
