Gorilla Magic Mug
A feminist version of the “magic mugs” that reveal a design when filled with a hot beverage, the Gorilla Magic Mug is a charming pun on the Guerrilla Girls, the anonymous artist group who contributed the artwork for it. At room temperature or below, the black mug reads “If you keep women out they get resentful” in a campy typeface that recalls horror comic strips. Fill it with a hot beverage, and the image of an angry gorilla appears, winking at the outmoded concept that women who stand up for themselves should be considered dangerous.
Known for wearing gorilla masks in humorous public demonstrations intended to disseminate facts about discrimination and corruption in politics, pop culture, film and art, the Guerrilla Girls most recently did a stealth campaign in New York City about the hijacking of art by the super wealthy. The Gorilla Magic Mug is a standard size stoneware mug that should only be hand washed. The mug is a great way to support these feminist art avengers in their ongoing fight for equality.
