Dietrich Wegner is an Australian artist, born in Adelaide. In 2009, in Chicago, he made a very special exhibition, with completely tattooed babies with logos of top brands. Tattoos, of course, are false. According to Dietrich, his work seeks to point out the contradictions and situations of conflict between ideas that coexist in society. How our identities are shaped and how we recognize ourselves as individuals is the subject of this series of works.
