We don't have any immediate perception of ourselves, our outward appearence, our gestures and the way we move. The article discusses the relation between this aspect and self-portraiture by means of an analysis of Dürer's and old Rembrandt's self-portraits. While Dürer attempts to make an icon out of himself, withdrawing his image from others' discretionary power, in his self-portrait expresses Rembrandt his astonishment in front of the accidental character of his own existence. Rembrandt's late self-portraits show exactly that the defective character of self-perception is the pre-condition for a freer relationship with oneselves and others.
