The SCUM GUN™ is a monument to Valerie Solanas. She was a monumental woman of hard action and honest words. Her S.C.U.M. manifesto is unique and she followed up by shooting Andy Warhol. Equally she needs an authentic portrait doing eternal justice to her transgressive performance and inspirational conduct. The monument therefore comes in the shape of a functional gun design to be printed on all standard 3D printers.
In times of rape, violence and killing of women, women need to uphold themselves by all means necessary. Drastic changes to the current gender inequality are now imminent. Some give the fight for women’s rights a face; we give its partisans a gun. The SCUM GUN™ is a leap ahead in the fight for women’s rights.
The SCUM GUN™ is downloadable from http://www.scumgun.me in standard .stl format. Color of the gun is of your choice. However we recommend nude for concealment, alternatively light pink. We ask you to consider the environment and choose the option of printing the gun in PLA. In case you need to quickly and safely deposit the gun you can do so by devouring it. Otherwise, or for recycling, please compost The SCUM GUN™ after use in your nearest flowerbed.
The S.C.U.M. gun is a project by Bergljot Stahl, visual and experimental artist.
