Barbie scarifies herself to fulfil social expectations and therefore leads an imposed miserable existence
in which she is unsatisfied. She wastes her only chance of self-determination through inactivity and
omission. Realising that she has wasted her only chance to live a happy and fulfilled life whilst her
real life being an emotional void Barbie tries to find someone to blame. And succeeds.
Barbie & Ken, the cliché of a perfect straight love, the typical social stereotypes of men and women.
But as so often appearances are deceiving. A journey through Barbies memories allows us to sneak
behind the curtain of this ‘perfect couple’. Is Ken gay? Is Barbie addicted to alcohol? Is the path society
expects us to choose always the right one? (http://www.kaistaenicke.com/own-drum/)
