Portraits are probably humanity's oldest answer to the question "Who are we?" - a question demonstrably posed and asked by all known cultures. They are testimony not only to the image and idea of the particular characters portrayed; they are also attempts to come to grips with the very notion of individual identity itself - in contrast to a collective identity, a collective representation, i.e. man/woman as the embodiment of general cultural characteristics, such as in the stylized images of heroes as the embodiment of the respective values and ideals of a culture. Man looking at himself: No longer does he/she take himself for granted, as one with nature or a cosmic order: He or she stands alone - and hence has to determine and define the nature of his/her relation to the rest of the world. We don't just look at others, others look at us - and we interpret the way they look. As we develop, we can anticipate and manipulate that process, to a degree at least. In a sense, we are doing that all the time, slipping outside of ourselves and looking back at ourselves. It is probably no exaggeration to say that the portrait is the most radical embodiment of perspective. For this reason, we want to present the subject in an interdisciplinary manner. The photography and video exhibition explores the Portrait as a cultural icon and the Self as an experimental site. This exhibition deals with the portrait and its representation as a collection of cultural associations examining simultaneously the photography as a medium of self-evidence. Foucault's statement that we should perceive the self as an art work in creation became a normal phenomenon and not an exceptional one. It seems that Man is not satisfied anymore in "finding himself" but insists on creating and designing himself. Thus, the global village functions as an experimental farm. The desire to dominate and own yourself, the feeling that you have chosen to create yourself becomes more and more prominent in the urban modern culture. The participating artists are: Irene Andessner, Anisa Ashkar, Tim Deussen, Uri Gershuni, April Gertler, Nabila Irshaid, Simcha Shirman.
