A workshop on self, identity, selfie and self portrait. How do individual visibility and agency intertwine with digital citizenship and privacy? Starting from the first self portraits in art and photography, going through technics of self observation and documentation we arrive today with the #selfie being the most famous hashtag in the social media, and when citizenship itself is increasingly governed through biometrics and large scale dataisation. We experiment with our digital identity, stage our selfie, hack our selfie, know our selfie's metadata. Please contact me for further information.
