Everybody wants to be famous for fifteen minutes. From Tracey Emin's Bed to Big Brother, exhibiting oneself in public is a mass-market phenomenon. For Freud, exhibitionism is a legacy of infantile sexuality, an essential act in the constitution of (male) self-recognition: look at me - I'm real! But it is a symptom of neurosis, too - a panic attack in the face of identity crisis.
