2012/2015, Janine Mackenroth
Duration: 12:12
Exhibition: 13. August — 12. September 2015
For the Happening «Breaking Bread» Munich artist Janine Mackenroth blew up 194 old, inedible loaves of bread arranged as a global map (194 countries of the world). The overall duration of the explosion lasted barely 10 minutes. This corresponds, on the average, to an explosion every 3 seconds – the same period of time in which people are dying globally as a result of hunger. Furthermore, Janine Mackenroth is consciously playing with another daily taboo: the destruction of food.
