Abstract:Because they understand the ego as a facade, these artists do not aim to represent "the self" or the ego. Instead, they attempt to represent subjectivity and thereby initiate a more penetrating analysis of the human condition and a more profound inquiry into the foundations of human suffering. Their examination of the origins and manifestations of unconscious desire results in a nuanced interrogation of identity and the markers directly related to them individually and collectively: gender, sexuality, race, and ethnicity.
