Self-portraits are perhaps as old as art itself. Once it was a realm reserved to artists. With postmodernism the classical definition of the self-portrait broadened: Since then artists do not just paint or sculpt images of themselves, they perform and intervene in front of an audience and the camera. They stage themselves, turning their actions, their working spaces, their ideas, and often also their (medial) lives into the content. Today, in a world of social media and selfies, everyone makes a portrait of themselves almost everywhere. Everything is shown, exposed, everything seemingly revealed. This year Cinema explores artistic self-representation in contemporary film and video. The main focus is the statement of the artist, his or her self as a subject, the own work and form of expression against the backdrop of a society increasingly based on self-referentiality.
