The price includes 6% VAT

“Photo-sharing is a theatrical way of distance communication.” Wolfgang Urlich, a professor of art history at Karlsruhe State University of the Arts, tackles the phenomenon of selfies and proposes some innovative theoretical thesis statements.

Why have selfies managed to become the most successful type of image on social media to date? What is their ratio to personal portrait and self-direction? Wolfgang Ullrich considers selfies to be the first type of a democratized and globalized culture of image. For the first time it is possible for people to exchange views through images just as they do through oral or written speech. The “virtual turn” proclaimed for many years now has become a reality.
