MAKE UP EXPO, Brussels

“We put on make up, wigs, whiskers and jeans.”

The sentence above is taken from make up productions’ manifesto, the Berlin production company of which Antonia Baehr and Werner Hirsch are members. It supports and creates multidisciplinary work by a number of artists linked by affinity.
Some of these artists might share the same biological body. Yet they treat constructed bodies with the same respect as biological ones, because they presuppose the latter are constructions as well: behind the make up, we find no truth but true make up.
