MOUTH mask - Cosmogolem
Protecting the Other!
Children are amongst the most vulnerable group in our societies, in many places still marginalized and ignored. They too should be considered in this pandemic. Reason why artist Koen Vanmechelen designed a specific MOUTH mask with the Cosmogolem, our giant of hope and dreams and worldwide symbol of children rights.
You can support this project through the purchase of an exclusive numbered Cosmogolem MOUTH mask litho of the artist. Cosmogolem masks are for sale at the LABIOMISTA shop in Genk, Belgium.
The proceeds of the project go to vulnerable communities worldwide. With these contributions we enable our local partner organizations around the world to set up home based sewing ateliers and produce protective masks locally.
The video below shows the start up of the ateliers in a local Mapuche Community in Valparaiso, Chile, under the care of Maria Guzman. This artist also designed the little CosmoGolem logo that features on the MOUTH Masks.
