Photographic self-portrait has always been considered as an artwork, either for its artistic or aesthetic dimensions. However, the appearance of smartphones brought about a new and highly criticized form of “self-portrait” : the “selfie”. This class offers the opportunity to narrate the history of the self-portrait and grasp its new dynamics in relation to digital media.
