Selfie in Art – Portrait and Hidden Self-Portrait in Western Art

The ‘selfie’ pictures are already familiar to us all. What at first seemed to be a trend for a younger age group, the selfie soon became popular across all age groups. But is this a new behavior, the need to take a selfie, or is it perhaps a modern, technological twist on an older technique that has existed for centuries?

We will examine the interesting human phenomenon through various works, from antiquity to the statues of the deceased in the Baroque period, in the present lecture.

Lior Aviv is one of AACI’s most popular lecturers who opens us to the wonders of Italy in all forms of art. Lior who is a graduate in art history (M.A. Dean’s Honors), working now on his PhD. Lior is also an authorized tour guide for Florence and Rome. During this lecture, we will remind ourselves how to see and feel art. We will do that not only through knowledge, facts and anecdotes, but also through our hearts and minds. Rediscovering this gift which is always within us, we’ll ensure that when you leave the beauty of Florence and /or Rome behind, you will take with you that which you have found within yourself and continue discovering throughout the world. Lior has also guided AACI groups in Florence. Don’t miss another exciting lecture!
