Selfies

Parallel presentation to coincide with "I am here!"

October 31, 2015 - January 31, 2016

in the Junge Kunsthalle

 

Self-awareness and self-representation carry great importance in the lives of children and those coming of age. How do our young visitors perceive and represent themselves? Within this process, what roles do age, sex, ancestry, and fashion play? What impact do our social networks have on the configuration of the self?

 

Accompanying the five centuries of artistic self-portraits on display in the main building, the exhibition in the “Junge Kunsthalle” seeks to encourage reflection on today’s forms of self-presentation in digital media. It features various activities involving perception, designed to support the development of identity in youth through experimentation with various creative and imaginative aesthetic styles.
