Me in Pictures. Five Centuries of Self-Portraits from the Collection of Prints and Drawings
What do I see when I look in the mirror? What does my face reveal in my painting of it? Self-questioning, self-affirmation, self marketing. Ever since artists first began portraying themselves, self-portraits have opened up multifaceted possibilities. And was not the imprint of a hand in prehistoric cave painting ultimately a self-portrait? The portraits chosen for the exhibition reveal a broad spectrum, ranging from the intimacy of drawings to the endless images of reproduction that have conquered the world through prints and photography. The works in the exhibition are by artists such as Rembrandt, Anton Graff, Karl Stauffer-Bern, Adolf Wölfli, Meret Oppenheim, Maria Lassnig, Manon and Luc Tuymans – as well as outstanding self-portraits by relatively obscure or forgotten artists.
