Self-Portrait with Head

Selbstportrait mit Kopf

Directed by Valie Export
Austria, 1966
Avant-Garde, Short


Valie Export wears an attention-getting curly wig and caresses a woman’s breasts in slow motion, then lasciviously closes and opens her eyes. The carefully applied makeup and wig tell of disguise and acting, and are simultaneously beautiful and terribly stony like the anonymous woman’s head.
