Berlin based curator Tina Sauerländer will speak with artist Carla Gannis about her work and artistic approach on the occasion of the artist’s book release of "The Selfie Drawings" and her solo exhibition 'A Subject Self-defined' at TRANSFER.
'The Selfie Drawings' by Carla Gannis were part of the group show Porn to Pizza—Domestic Clichés curated by Tina Sauerländer at DAM Gallery in Berlin last year. The topic of the show, the change of personal comfort zones in the Digital Age, complements 'The Selfie Drawings' that deal with contemporary states of analog-virtual hybridity and identity performance.
