LIFE ON MARS

Life on Mars is a collaborative photo series by Angelina Schöck und Henrik Prinz, Berlin.

We have long since become used to having our own history represented by American images. Prinz and Schöck instrumentalize popular US media iconography to create a contemporary self-portrait. Uniforms from the long-running TV series Star Trek, futuristic interpretation of global captitalism as humanistic adventure, are sabotaged by a simple gesture, and the monumental presence of the media icons is underscored with dark irony.
