"Double Self-Portrait" pairs images of German actresses from the 1930's with anti-Semitic caricatures of men found in 18th - 20th century French, German, Middle-Eastern and Soviet publications. The images of women are enlargements of collectable variety cards, found in German cigarette packages in the 1930's. Originally these cards were organized in different series with titles such as: "A German Woman, A German City" or "A German Profile," suggesting the racist sentiments prevalent in German society and prefiguring the National Socialists. The prints in "Double Self-Portrait" are framed under gilded glass mats and presented with the formal conventions of historical portraiture.
