Open Programme

My body as a room of one’s own, where you only have to suffice for yourself, your own standards of beauty and aesthetics. But how far can you go? Where do you have to stop, since all beauty images you have seen in your entire life have been imprinted in your head and define the pattern of your thinking and perception of how your body should look like.
How to break with the tradition of sexual expectations combined with a naked body?
And still, should not your own body at least be a playground for you, enabling fun and lightness of your life? At what point, after growing up, did this simple kind of joy leave you?

Back in Vienna she attended the Applied College for Photography and Audiovisual Media, also known as ‘Die Graphische’. Since her graduation Michèle has been working as a portrait photographer in Vienna.
