Protected Privacy - Protect Yourself!
In 2014 Stefanie Minzenmay started her portrait series “Protected Privacy – Protect Yourself!”.
The series addresses how young people deal with today’s media. As “digital natives”, their use of the information possibilities offered by the Internet and social networks comes easily and natural to them. At the same time, through the use of social media, information is also being fed with uncontrollable permanence to this media.
The person and its portrait as a documentation and proof of the person’s existence and actions as well as the viewer’s source of information and reflection are the aspects that interest Stefanie Minzenmay. The work primarily concerns information that is unnaturally suppressed, obscured and hidden, which is not received by the viewer and leads to some irritation.
