Brian Alfred – Richard Billingham – Christian Boltanski – Bruce Nauman – Elizabeth Peyton – Cindy Sherman – Beat Streuli – Fiona Tan – Luc Tuymans – and a guest of honour from the 18th century

This exhibition features works by ten artists who explore themes of identity. Expressing confidence and doubt, self-control and disclosure, familiarity and alienation, remembering and forgetting, the more than 1300 faces on display reveal the complex personality possessed by every single human being. The selected portraits also show how the representation of reality has become increasingly uncertain in the modern age, and that the dissolution of a clear representational relationship between reality and perception goes to the very core of all our questioning: to the self, the individual, the subject.

The artists presented here give very different answers to the question of self – as well as to the question that is inextricably linked to this, namely the issue of ‘you’, the person opposite, the Other. Significantly, none of the younger artists seems to want or be able to provide a clear and definite answer through his or her pictures – undeniably me.
