artists portraying themselves in film and video
Launch of SPC – Self-Portrait Collection in May 2010
Like in the classical artistic media, self-portraying takes also in film & videoart a prominent position, the own “self” is not only representing the cheapest model, but self-reflecting belongs basically to the essential processes and activities of an artist. Thus, there are good reasons why artists self-portraits can often be counted to the best and most intimate works of an artist, at all.
would like to invite artists working in the field of the moving images to submit their self-portraits in video.
