"Watch me watch you watch me - instrumentalizing the audience's gaze in the age of selfies (A Meta-Selfie)"

Stefan Prins, ÖFFENTLICHprivat - (Zwischen)Raüme in der Gegenwartsmusik, ed. Jörn Peter Hiekel, Schott, April 2020

In April 2019 I gave a presentation at the 73rd Frühjahrstagung of the Institut für Neue Musik und Musikerziehung Darmstadt about the use of selfies in the context of contemporary music. I thoroughly reworked and expanded this presentation and turned it into the essay Watch me watch you watch me - Instrumentalizing the Audience's Gaze in the Age of Selfies (A Meta-Selfie) which has now been published in the book ÖFFENTLICHprivat - (Zwischen)Raüme in der Gegenwartsmusik, ed. Jörn Peter Hiekel, by Schott. The book can be ordered here.
