<nettime> #whataboutyourselfie

   network platforms: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google*+* and Youtube,
   by adding the hashtag #whataboutyourselfie or by sending an e-mail
   contribution to *whataboutyourselfie {AT} gmail.com

   Self-portraits, since ancient times, have broadcasted a variety of
   private issues of artists' lives. They reported on, for example,
   processes of aging in the classic, drawn and painted self-portrait
   serials of Vermeer or Rembrandt, illness in the photo-works of Jo
   Spence, and identity crisis and mediated identities in photographs by
   Cindy Sherman. In each of them the relationship of subject/artist to
   audience is dynamic, based on psychological mirroring, empathy and
   identification.
   Two types of self-portraits may be distinguished, with regard to
   audience;
   (1) tautological, addressing no public at all, and (2) relational,
   asking for a relationship with the public. Contemporary social media
   âselfieâ
   phenomena prefers a monologue, diarist type of self-portrait that
   performs an exposure rather than truly uncovering.
   This project invites relational self-portraits and links to
   self-portraits or their collections that:
   Â  Â -
   Â Â Â force us to research our own selfhood
   Â  Â -
   Â Â Â are made as homages and references to otherâs identities
   Â  Â -
   Â Â Â are âself-portraits as someone elseâ in terms of travesty and
   Â  Â cross-dressing
   Â  Â -
   Â Â Â mirror the viewer by specific implementation of technology or
   medium.
