For the “Untitled Horrors” exhibition, Susanne König offers the form “#beimirläufts - Titled Selfies”. The workshops, which are aimed at adults and young people alike, take place as part of the “Menschenbilder” or “People Pictures” summer workshop.

How do I present myself? In self-portraits using our smartphones, we create our everyday selves. With the help of images by Cindy Sherman, we discuss questions of identity, personality and self-presentation. For the selfies, we photograph our desired state of mind and experiment with the app developed especially for the “Untitled Horrors” exhibition. We compare Cindy Sherman’s continually changing roles with our momentary snapshots.
