THE MASQUERADE OF THE REAL
“I am a German artist based in Berlin working in the field of photography, video and installations. The main focus of my photographs is identity and the role of the human body within society. Image-generating media like photography, television, and film and their use in advertising and the internet impose increasing demands on the body and subject it to a process of abstraction, while at the same time leading to the emergence of a public opinion, the solidification of images as role models with gender-specific attributes.”
