Description of the project
Life is a fiction… based on real events.
From individual fiction to collective fiction. From the stories created by the powerful to control the weakest to the self-deception we create to survive.
The philosopher Slavoj Žižek says that we need fiction to face life, to digest it. We need to live in a story, because the real reality is traumatic, excessive, unbearable. To protect ourselves from it, we live in a world that, so hyperrealistic, is deeply unreal, and we begin to perceive real reality as a virtual entity, an illusion, a nightmare.
A scenic journey that does not want to be an escape from the Platonic cave, but a conscious descent into its darkest caves.
