Kurdwin Ayub’s humorous and clever dismantling of the (media) representations of women is a playful starting note for Ulrich Seidl’s portrait of three Viennese models, which provides insight into their everyday life beyond fame, and grants access to the taciturn backstage of a world that revolves around seeing and being seen, around images and their production. It appears to be true: those who want to be beautiful must suffer.
