DIS: #ARTSELFIE. Douglas Coupland. Jean Boite Editions, Paris, 2014. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 128 pp. with 243 col. ills. 25 x 18 cm. ISBN 9782365680073 Bilingual in French and English.
Publisher's description: #artselfie opens with an incisive remark by Douglas Coupland: "Selfies are mirrors we can freeze ... Selfies allow us to see how others look at themselves in a mirror making their modeling face when nobody's around ... except these days, everybody's around everywhere all the time." The #artselfie hashtag emerged in 2012 and was subsequently activated by New York-based collective DIS, as an aggregated mode of art-tourism and documentation. These selfies and their dialogue with art are an opportunity to revisit fundamental questions such as: if art is a mirror, what happens when we place ourselves between it and the camera? Including an introduction by Douglas Coupland (author of Generation X and ruthless observer of contemporary society) and a discussion between Simon Castets and DIS, #artselfie allows us to experience how significant--and seductive--this viral phenomenon is.
