SEND NUDES – The phrase is a cliché-like expression from the generation of app-based dating. It contains the request to send nude pictures and is often presented without digression to complete strangers.
It is a very contemporary paradox in the figurative sense: with minimal effort, without the willingness to show something of oneself, the counterpart is expected to reveal himself in a way that is extremely vulnerable and yet abstractly unapproachable. The need for emotional intimacy is suffocated by the flawless staging of the self in a superficial exhibitionism.
