This panel seeks contributions on the relationship between creativity and fame, content and form, face and mask. Looking at various styles of self-representation of authors, film-makers or other cultural figures, in the building of fame we ask:  What legitimates a work of art, success and fame in the era of voluntary and coercive digital self-exposure? What forms of resistance to self-exposure help foster success and myth in ironic fashion?
