annotation:  The article considers the phenomenon of the selfie through the lens of classic art and some philosophical ideas. It focuses particularly on the image as a sign system and also on the similarity and difference between a selfie and a classical self-portrait. Some certain events in the lives of such artists as Joseph Beuys, Andy Warhol, Hippolyte Bayard, Leonardo da Vinci, Kazimir Malevich, Marcel Duchamp, Salvador Dali, and also Rene Descartes and Immanuel Kant served as the illustrative material for the article. The author claims that selfie characterizes the contemporary condition of culture.
Keywords:  selfie, photography, fine art, self portrait, visual semiotics, universal satisfaction (Allgemeines Wohlgefallen)
