Re-magazine is an intresection of visual culture and editorial experimentation. Each issue is about the life of one person.
Issue # 10 of Re-Magazine is dedicated to Claudia who served as a construction to talk about (an exaggeration of) positive qualities. People were interviewed about being tall, successful, happy, beautiful, intelligent etc. and this research material was combined and re-written into Claudia's radiant monologue.
Claudia is an extraordinary woman from Berlin. Her overwhelming height of 1m98 (6'5”) and dazzling charisma make her a woman who is almost too big for this ...

Some of the research and content of Claudia re-appears in: Uta/Lauren - Lauren/Uta.

"There is a fatality about all physical and intellectual distinction, the sort of fatality that seems to dog through history the faltering steps of kings. It is better not to be different from one's fellows. The ugly and the stupid have the best of it in this world. They can sit at their ease and gape at the play. If they know nothing of victory, they are at least spared the knowledge of defeat. They live as we all should live, undisturbed, indifferent, and without disquiet. They neither bring ruin upon others, nor ever receive it from alien hands. Your rank and wealth, Harry; my brains, such as they are - my art, whatever it may be worth; Dorian Gray's good looks - we shall all suffer for what the gods have given us, suffer terribly."

The Picture of Dorian Gray, The Complete Works of Oscar Wilde, London 1966, p.19.
