skin & bones
During the last couple of decades a merciless ideal of beauty established, which is spread especially by the cosmetics industry. This ideal is omnipresent in our society. Various ways of improving one's body result in the pressure one faces trying to match this ideal of beauty. Particularly women are expected to adapt to this image of beauty and thus the idealized standard-body portrayed by TV and commercials replaces our understanding for the diversity of everyday bodies. "skin & bones" is the beginning of an engagement with the female body, which places special emphasis on this diversity of everyday bodies. Beauty can not be found in the media construction but - above all - in reality.
