As the title suggests, the exhibition revolves around the issue of the ego, that is the bodily ego of the artists involved. It includes works from 17 international artists from different generations. Their common feature is the visual reference to their creator.

Since the 60s, many different forms of expression and techniques have been and still are developed that broach the issue of the body or the persona of the artist. The exhibition emphasizes the engagement with the topic is more prevalent than ever and also of great significance for the artist. From this perspective the show explores different paths of the development and the incentive to include one‘s own body in the work of art. Whereas many artists engage in political, historical or sociocultural topics, others are concerned with seemingly personal matters. This raises the question to which degree it is possible to display the body and at the same time exclude the social environmental context. Gestures that at first seem merely egocentric may comment on society, life or the condition humaine. A richly illustrated catalogue published by Kerber accompanies the exhibition.

The exhibition - curated by Johannes Sperling - investigates the different approaches and motivations for the presentation of the self between portrait and performance. Since Timm Ulrichs’ first attempt to exhibit himself in 1965, artists have been exploring new ways of including their own body or their physicality within their work of art. The radicalism of the practice as the first of its kind was emphasized by its prohibition as displayed in a secretly taken photograph  of Timm Ulrichs’  restaged exhibition in a museum‘s storage facility. This piece and other works by Timm Ulrichs will be shown as well as works from other artists who are following the tradition of self portrait while transforming, expanding and updating it.  The exhibition 1.pers.sing combines renowned international artists such as Candice Breitz, Jonathan Meese, Ai Weiwei, Ragnar Kjartansson and the artist couple Tim Noble and Sue Webster as well as artists from the following generation i.e. Clemens Wilhelm and Sebastian Stumpf.
