DIS: #artselfie

By Marvin Jordon

Published by  Jean Boîte Éditions, March 24, 2015

Paperback: 128 pages

#artselfie opens with an incisive remark by Douglas Coupland: “Selfies are mirrors we can freeze … Selfies allow us to see how others look at themselves in a mirror making their modeling face when nobody’s around … except these days, everybody’s around everywhere all the time.” The #artselfie hashtag emerged in 2012 and was subsequently activated by New York-based collective DIS, as an aggregated mode of art-tourism and documentation. These selfies and their dialogue with art are an opportunity to revisit fundamental questions such as: if art is a mirror, what happens when we place ourselves between it and the camera? Including an introduction by Douglas Coupland (author ofGeneration X and ruthless observer of contemporary society) and a discussion between Simon Castets and DIS, #artselfie allows us to experience how significant-and seductive-this viral phenomenon is.
