Here they are back again, tho­se heroes who fasci­na­ted me ever sin­ce i was a kid. They can fly, throw cars kilo­me­tres away, turn them­sel­ves into crea­tures of fla­mes or ice or beco­me invi­si­ble … super heroes inha­bit our world again and ther­eby our minds!” (Judith Mau­le, Sonic­Words)

On Octo­ber 15 2007 the artist and fashion desi­gner Judith Mau­le pres­ents her diplo­ma collec­tion “Sonic­Words”. The collec­tion con­sists of eight fema­le super hero suits based on clas­si­cal cos­tu­mes from the 1940s to the 1960s. For the fashion maker the ever­y­day weara­bi­li­ty of the desi­gned pie­ces is important in par­ti­cu­lar – without aban­do­ning the for­mal stan­dards of fema­le super hero cos­tu­mes. Ono­ma­to­po­eic words like “Ka-chuck”, “Boom” or “Aieee”, so cal­led Sonic­Words, extend the indi­vi­du­al models in form of embro­ide­ries – they func­tion as eponyms of the collec­tion and the eight dif­fe­rent designs.

In addi­ti­on to the collec­tion a comic has been crea­ted in which the pho­to­gra­phed models and drawings have been imple­men­ted in the form of col­la­ges. The comic is shown on a home­page with text mate­ri­als and detail views of the cos­tu­mes. The diplo­ma pre­sen­ta­ti­on of the collec­tion takes place on Octo­ber 15th 2007 at the quitch. On the one hand the indi­vi­du­al models will be shown, on the other hand a medi­al pre­sen­ta­ti­on of the home­page and the clot­hing takes place. The evening will be accom­pa­nied musi­cal­ly by DJ Revol­ver Dog.

In the dis­play win­dow of the quitch pic­tures of the collec­tion and indi­vi­du­al pie­ces will be shown for the fol­lowing two weeks.
