Selfportrait

Lassnig, or more precisely her head, drawn with felt-tip pen, sings in English with a heart-rending Austrian accent about her life, her dreams, her eternal search for a male partner: "To look for the better half." But whenever one which is suitable with regard to color and shape appears, he calls her "weak" and "woman" in the same verse.

(Maya McKechneay)


A conciliatory review of the life of the author using the techniques of animated film. In 1972, Selfportrait received the award of the New York State Council.
