Gertrud Arndt, a German weaver and photographer, pioneered the self-portrait in the 30s, she was known internationally only in the 70s for her self-portraits with a mask. Gertrud was a strange girl. She cut her braids, became a vegetarian, and fought against the stigmas of gender. She longed to be an architect, but she ended up at Bauhaus Fabrics - the Vorwerk firm would manufacture a rug of hers in 1994 - She married the architect Alfred Arndt, appointed by Hannes Meyer as head of the Interior Design workshop, and dedicated herself to doing what today we would call selfies but with different costumes. She focused on her two children, and only after Arndt's death in 1976 she was rediscovered as a great photographer.
