About – basics was founded in 1995 by Heleen Claassen and Barbara Münzing, making it one of the first agencies for visagists and stylists in Berlin. Our extensive base of loyal clients is from the areas of fashion, beauty, advertising, catalogues, music, PR, events, TV, fashion shows, and e-commerce. Our domestically and internationally active artists not only work in these areas but are also booked by actors, politicians and other public figures regularly, some already for several years. This is made possible as part of events such as the red carpet and press junkets during the Berlinale, trade fairs such as the Fashion Week, Bread & Butter and Premium, Deutscher Filmpreis, and the Echo Awards.
Our stylists and outfitters put together creative concepts and realize the professional design for shop and trade show presentations. We proudly look back on countless successful projects and many years of intensive and harmonious cooperation with our clients. New clients benefit from our experience and receive comprehensive professional advise in selecting the right artist. basics.berlin

I like you, I like you a lot is a personal work about family and the experience of death and mourning. It responds to the tragic loss of the photographer’s 13-year-old brother Maks, who drowned while on a scout’s trip in 2008 in Poland. The images show the sequence of events in the aftermath of the tragedy. The camera became a shield protecting against the brutal reality of a helpless situation. The deceased brother and his closest friends formed a small group. Dressed in uniforms of American soldiers, they would play in Silesian landscapes reminiscent of paintings by Caspar David Friedrich. Communism ended in 1990 when Poland opened its borders to a flood of Western products and ideals. Maks and his friends were the first generation to grow up under that changing culture. The camera witnesses how they were enthralled by Western and especially American archetypes.
We learn from the text of Olivier Richon: “Kafka and Friedrich have been called upon as cultural off frames that inform my reading of “I like you, I like you a lot”, opening and closing the visual narrative in the manner of two book ends. A writer and a painter, both from central Europe. Here, photography is a narrative form predicated upon the restful silence of images – the silence of a crypt. It is a reliquary of sorts that uses the camera as a container that preserves images. The photographs are these visual relics that articulate an aesthetic and emotional relation to loss. They follow a structure of disavowal, what Freud called Verleugnung, which achieves a compromise wherein the memory of the departed is conserved and abandoned. To accept the verdict of reality and yet to maintain a belief in the existence of the departed through the photograph as a relic. The photograph as a relic is a frozen moment reminiscent of the arrested motion of baroque art, an art that flourished in Silesia. But these photographs are not just relics, they are also works of art with a haunting off frame.”
The book was published with texts by Thomas Frangenberg (1957 – 2018), who is not only a specialist for renaissance paintings and sculpture but also a collector of conceptual art, and Olivier Richon (born 1956), a Swiss photographer residing in London. He is a Professor at the Royal College of Art.
