Hypnotized by beauty standards youth means everything and separates generations. Advertising campaigns feed us with high-gloss beauty aspirations, but in the mirror of the media our own body appears unworthy. The customer stays unsatisfied. He needs to be kept hungry. Beauty is success, they suggest. The body becomes the object, manipulable at will. The market makes existence bearable – the beauty, the attention, the good life and all that we can have to keep our masks intact and invulnerable.
Is the prerequisite for protecting the outer nature worth the value of our inner nature?
Where do we carry our own skin to the market in relationships, opinions and judgements for and against each other, medical plastic surgery, fashion, clothing, eroticism, pornography, private data?
The skin is the outer boundary of our body, where do we draw the limit of marketing our body?
The market sets the aesthetic standards for beauty, but how do we escape this commercial trap?
WE WANT YOUR PERSPECTIVES:
