Neue Menschen (new Human Beings)
by Rico Scagliola & Michael Meier
Publisher's Description
For 2 ½ years Rico Scagliola and Michael Meier took pictures and filmed teenagers, creating an archive of photographs and videos. Neue Menschen (New Human Beings) provides a glimpse into this project. Teenagers today are the first generation to grow up with the picture-worlds of the Internet. Platforms of self-presentation such as Myspace and Facebook are a normal part of life to them. They learn at a young age how to present themselves in pictures. Meier and Scagliola use the young people’s visual sophistication and skilled self-presentation, integrating the projected pictures and fantasies into their own cosmos of images.
