The figure seen from the back is a recurring motif in the history of Western art, but has rarely been the subject of a specific study. This subject nevertheless seems particularly relevant in our modern-day society. Indeed, the anonymity that the back view implies can be seen as an antidote to the massive phenomenon of self-disclosure or even exhibitionism resulting from the intensive use of social media and, more particularly, the daily output of thousands of ‘selfies’. The anonymity of a person seen from the back can also be interpreted as a deliberate act of resistance to the innumerable surveillance devices in our cities (using facial recognition) which have spread to such an extent that they become a threat to individual freedom. Following the example of contemporary artists who question the subversive dimension of a backside view, this book can be read as a reflection on the intentions of this position vis-à-vis the functioning of self-images or the place of the individual and individuality in public space.
