text: Collier Schorrs limited edition for her exhibition Freeway Balconies is based on a photograph from her long-running series in which the artist costumes and choreographs a cast of young men in either German or U.S. military uniforms / in posing her models in this manner, she confronts the symbolism of World War II—era attire in a frank engagement with both countries’ conflicted histories / these staged portraits often have real-life counterpoints, as Schorr also photographs the models in their own active military service uniforms / flirting with the idea that what repels can also attract, Schorr ultimately undermines the power and authority encoded in standard-issue dress on both sides of the demarcation line / the translation of her photograph into a drawing further plays on notions of originality and authenticity in a conception of identity as something donned and doffed as easily as a change of outfit / edited by Deutsche Guggenheim, Berlin //
