(b.1968)
Anders is an artist working in video, sound, new media and installations and he is primarily concerned with identity. The human body lies at the root of projects that formally and conceptually chart identity and its construction as a preamble to broaching matters of violence, genders, memory, loss or ideology in which personal experiences co-exists with references to popular culture, the media and consumerism. Specializing in digital technologies, he aims to mix genres and ways of expression to explore the potential of audio visual media.

He coined the term Peer-to-peer art or (p2p art) in 2006. Art made for - and only available on - the peer to peer networks. The original artwork is first shared by the artist until one other user has downloaded it. After that the artwork will be available for as long as other users share it. The original file and all the material used to create it are deleted by the artist. ”There’s no original”. Six films with a duration between 45 minutes and 9 hours have been uploaded on the file sharing networks in one copy and their original have been deleted. P2P Art - The aesthetics of ephemerality.

Also the founder and curator of the Stian [con]temporary art gallery and AIVA, Angelholm International Video Art Festival 2012.

Currently based in the small village Kölleröd in the south of Sweden and has exhibited at numerous art/film festivals, galleries, and museums internationally, including:

Since the fifteenth century and the advent of the mirror artists have modeled for themselves in their own works of art. Whatever the reason, nearly every artist, in every medium from painters to sculptors have attempted this exploration of self.

How does the artistic self portrait look today in the smartphone era?

You are hearby invited to make a creative self portrait using a mirror and a camera phone.

The only criteria is that you are an artist. The medium you work in doesn’t matter

It has to be a self portrait taken by you in front of a mirroring surface and the cameraphone has to be visible. Other than that it’s open to your creativity. It doesn’t have to be an iPhone. Any brand can be used as long as it’s a phone.
No ordinary cameras allowed.

The domain is a take on the various similar sites like guyswithiphones girlswithiphones, babeswithiphones, uncutgirlswithiphones, hairycatswithiphones and so on.

Take your self portrait and email it to: pic@artistswithiphones.com.

Thats all.

This pictures will not be sold or distributed in any way. This is Your picture and always will.

Would there in the future be anyone interested in doing a exhibition of this collection every artist will for sure be asked before anything happens and you are free to then decide if you would like to participate in that or not.

I’m doing this out of pure curiosity and I’m really looking forward to see a lot of creative self portraits.
