Die gepflegte Frau [The Neat Woman]

Julia Brun

Women are confronted with high expectations these days. A woman is emancipated, mother and working, successful, looking great and content.

Julia Brun embarks on a quest for the ideal image of the perfect contemporary woman. She follows the aesthetic instructions of popular culture and connected standards of optimization. By means of self-experimentation, she explores what it means to cater to the demands of society, which in Julia Brun’s eyes are steeped in misogyny. On the other hand, she surveys the burgeoning feminist debate after the so-called “fourth wave.” According to this discourse, all women are free to embrace their own life’s design and put their own personal development center stage.

In her work, Brun questions depictions of femininity and shows how to develop femaleness and being a woman by staging oneself in social media.
