THE
PICTOPLASMA
PORTRAIT
GALLERY

2014, Exhibition
On the occasion of Pictoplasma’s 10th anniversary, a vast group exhibition in an abandoned ware-house in the center of Berlin staged character portraits by the artists who, over the years, have shaped the festival most distinctively. The time-honoured genre of classical portraiture seemed an obvious choice to reflect back on character genealogies and to preserve their essence for the future.

Funded by the German Federal Cultural Foundation, the Pictoplasma Portrait Gallery examined the genealogical dimensions of figurative aesthetics in the postdigital age and presented paintings, busts, sculptures, animated video portraits by today’s most influential creators of character-driven visuals – also extending the list to accommodate the current obsession with self-portraits taken on a cellphone, gathered by Pictoplasma in an open call for #CharacterSelfies.
