Selfie | From self portrait to staging the self

The sum­mer’s large-scale pho­to­graphic ex­hi­bi­tion at Brandts takes us on a tour in­side the world of pre­sent­ing the self. As a pic­ture for­mat and phe­nom­e­non the selfie has be­come an in­deli­ble part of our pre­sent time. It has be­come a way of vi­su­ally plac­ing our­selves at cen­tre stage and in prac­ti­cally any con­text. But are pic­tures noth­ing other or more than se­duc­tive snap­shots of re­al­ity? The ex­hi­bi­tion pre­sents sig­nif­i­cant artists who have worked with pho­to­graphic self por­traits, from Andy Warhol to Cindy Sher­man, along with pre­sent-day celebri­ties such as Car­o­line Woz­ni­acki and Kim Kar­dashian, who use self­ies to cre­ate sto­ries of them­selves.
