Kerstin und Nola Bunke mustern die Norm. Anhand von foto- und typografischen Untersuchungsverfahren werden Konstrukt, Korrektur und Konsens betrachtet. Stereotype winden sich in unvermuteter Grazie. Standard und Standardabweichung bitten zum Tanz. Je genauer man das Klischee ins Auge fasst, desto seltsamer blickt es zurück. Fragen, Statistiken, Formulare und Normblätter fügen sich in einen illustren Reigen mit fotografischen Studien, immer genau und nie wahr. Read Less
