London, 2010
Zine: black and white photo copies, 10,5 x 15 cm, 24 pages, edition: 50


„Doppelgänger“ shows portraits of young men from Vienna, who pluck their eyebrows. Intrigued by the phenomenon of men plucking their eyebrows in a ­“femi­nine” way, Prammer started to research the portrayal of young male adults in magazines. Then she ­asked strangers with plucked ­eyebrows to be photographed in poses suggested by ­the magazines. Prammer was fascinated by the result that men didn’t become more “feminine”, because of their plucked eyebrows in the same ­way ­women often are received to be more ­“masculine”, when they adopt a male connoted symbol, like wearing a tie.
