In her video work FASHIONS Keren Cytter dissects human action and feeling in the perspective of the exchange of commodities with blunt directness. Her personas are bourgeois: the center of society. They subject everything to a purely economically oriented internal rational. Love as well is only an exchange relation. Neoliberal thinking put on tracks, this is the train to Auschwitz.

 

FASHIONS was supported by the German Federal Cultural Foundation and the Munich Documentation Centre for the History of National Socialism. It is part of “Tell me about yesterday tomorrow”, NS-Dokumentationszentrum, München.
