#Blogparade #selfierade

15 October 2015 - 31 January 2016

The Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe and Kulturkonsorten were launching a discussion and #Blogparade across social networks on the topic of selfies and wanted the public to get involved. The cause for the discussion was the exhibition I am here: From Rembrandt to the Selfie. To kick-start the discussion we were posting an exclusive preview of an essay from the exhibition catalogue, written by the art historian and cultural theorist Wolfgang Ullrich and dealing with the topic of selfies. The essay was posted on the Kunsthalle’s and Kulturkonsorten’s websites. In anticipation of the exhibition, the Kunsthalle involved commentators who came up with five posts to get the ball rolling by addressing the topic from five different angles. The #Blogparade around the hashtag #selfierade achieved many inspiring blogposts. More details available here

Instagram Photo Competition

18 - 31 January 2016

A digital self portrait only becomes a selfie when it is shared, liked, and commented on. In cooperation with the photography project ‘This Ain’t Art School’ (@thisaintartschool) the Kunsthalle was holding a competition in the middle of January in which participants were given four tasks related to self-portraits and selfies. Creative contributions were posted on Instagram under the hashtag #portraitassignment_ka.
