Is the world, especially the art world, the best we can imagine?

Janine Mackenroth's exhibition PANGLOSSIAN in the Protected content is a hopeful feminist but also sarcastic journey of the artist through this world and its possibilities, prejudices and obstacles.

The term Panglossian is based on Pangloss, a boundlessly positive figure from Voltaire's Candide or the optimism from Protected content .

Mackenroth joins Candide's view and plays with the traditional views on artists that are still anchored in many minds today. This reality led Mackenroth to build the first nail polish painting machine in Protected content . Janine Mackenroth created and patented her constructions out of the alleged inability of the women artists to paint properly, so that they could do the painting for her - according to the artist Georg Baselitz's claim "Women don't paint very well. That is a fact." in the SPIEGEL-Interview Protected content .
