The artist’s body between self-portrait and performance

What all the works by the seventeen international contemporary artists presented here have in common is that their creator is a physically visible part of the end product.
From the self-portrait to performance, this book examines a wide range of approaches to depictions of the self and the motives underlying them. While some artists address political, historical or sociocultural themes, others are concerned with what appear to be more personal matters. Is it possible to “isolate” one’s own body at all – to view it separately from everything surrounding it? Gestures which at first seem egocentric can also be read as commentary – on society, on life or on the condition humaine.
