The Self in the Mirror of the World – Some Quotes from the Introductory Speech to the Exhibition

“Gabriela Goronzy – liveliness – 100 drawings”

“With the cultural upheavals brought about by the Renaissance, a new topos appeared in the repertoire of fine arts: the self-portrait.”
“Since then, the self-portrait has run through the history of art like a thread and has become ubiquitous in the form of selfies.”
“The mere question of the individual self-shows a much clearer tradition and finds its earliest striking expression in Europe in the dictum” Gnothi seauton “: Know yourself!, which in the 5th century BC. Ad as an inscription in the vestibule of the temple of Delphi.
The view of the self is placed in the service of world knowledge in the Delphic oracle, on the assumption that the processes in our mind correspond to the processes in the outer world and that the way we order and evaluate things is based on general principles follows. The self becomes the mirror of the world.”

If we transfer this idea to cultural theory, we are suddenly in the middle of the relevant discourse on the interrelated relationship between identity, culture and the environment.”

“This great world is the mirror into which we must look in order to get to know each other from the bottom up.”, and later William Makepeace Thackeray, in whose Vanity Fair it says: “The world is a mirror from which everyone faces his own face.”
The “Gnothi seauton” has become “Gnothi ton kosmon”, the “Know yourself” to “Know the world”. ”
“Gabriela Goronzy illuminates this area of tension between the perception of ourselves as an individual or part of a group, as a self-sufficient entity or interchangeable piece of mosaic, as an original or a copy, in a very differentiated manner and without a final evaluation.”
