Art exhibit looks at talking about the growing westernization of beauty craze
The beauty industry includes not only makeup and clothing products, but also cosmetic and plastic surgery that profits from the well-ingrained notions of what beauty 'should and should not look like'.
Within the Swiss population, it is estimated that 64 tons of cosmetics and hair product are utilized. Facial products alone pull in over 400 million Swiss Francs ($428 million) per year.
In Bern, two museums came together in order to create an exhibition titled “Bin ich schon? / J'suis beau?” (Am I beautiful). The question is simple and a bit cliché, but is also one that may become vitally important in a country that might come to face as the prospective employees include photos of their CVs.
“Originally, the exhibition title was ‘What is beautiful?’ but we changed it because we wanted to approach the visitors directly with a personal question,” Kurt Stadelmann, curator of the Museum of Communication, told swissinfo.ch. His museum hosts the bulk of the show, with the neighboring Museum of Natural History housing the rest.
It’s a bit provocative, asking visitors to ask themselves if they’re beautiful. And we hope they get some answers in the exhibition,” Stadelmann said, pointing out that there are no mirrors on display.
He hopes that people will find inner beauty rather than looking at magazine covers, models, dolls and other cultural references, such as statues, for what 'perfect' figures are.
The number of surgeons that deal with both reconstruct and aesthetic surgery has grown steadily throughout the last two decades. In the 1980s there were but 24 surgeons that catered to that demographic. There were 44 such surgeons a decade later. Currently there are somewhere around 135 total plastic surgeons.
Swissinfo.ch asked Daniel Knutti, a plastic surgeon, why individuals may want to alter their appearance.
“They don’t necessarily want to change – they just want to look better or more beautiful. Or they want to enhance the beautiful parts of their body – basically to feel better,” answered Knutti, who opened his own practice in Biel in 1988.
