Abstract

This is the age of selfies and selfie sticks. The self-portrait taken by the camera of a smartphone, which is immediately distributed and cast into a network, created a new way and new space of communication, as well as a new form of art. In China, the portrait itself held, for a certain period, the power of breaking with the past and with the dominant tradition. The selfie on the other hand seems to be the manifestation of a type of cultural homogeneity.
