From Surrealist selfies to feminist self-portraiture, the ISelf Collection explores identity and the human condition through the central themes of birth, death, sexuality, love, pain and joy. Taking the display of the collection at Whitechapel Gallery as its springboard, this book looks generally at the question of the self in modern and contemporary art, and the ways in which artists are thinking about being and identity as an individual, in relation to others, to society and the wider world.

Martha Wilson Sourcebook is the first in a new publication series by ICI that offers a fresh perspective on social, political, and cultural issues impacting artists’ practices. Each compendium is comprised of articles, letters, newspaper cuttings, extracts from books, and images that an artist selects from their own archive and annotates with personal commentaries on the themes that arise. By using this subjective approach as a lens through which to rediscover pivotal debates in art and reconsider seminal texts, as well as to introduce little-known or out-of-print material, the Sourcebook series places emphasis on the histories and theories that have had a formative influence on an artist’s thought process.
