„An immense labor to which the West has submitted generations in order to produce - while other forms of work ensured the accumulation of capital - men subjection: their constitution as subjects in both senses of the word.”
Michel Foucault: The History of Sexuality, Volume I.
The current exhibition aims to make the spectator observe and be observed at the same time. While we watch others, we are being watched, too. The desire of observing one another, of having insight into the lives of others posits a system of norms based on which we define ourselves compared to others. We want to confirm that we have similar problems as others, that we are better than or just as good as they are. In other words, that we only differ from the average on an average scale.
