Huis clos

by Ioan Cernei, Maša Jazbec and Fabrizio Lamoncha

“If I you can answer me who I am.
Then at least I will have an identity.
I will know what or who to be.”


By knocking on house you interact with the ego inside of it. With the project we are exploring a basic understanding that humans have free will. But that freedom of choice leads to anxiety. In other words, man since he is free and aware of possibilities, anxiety is part of human experience. With choices comes the absolute responsibility for one’s action. The fear and anxiety of this responsibility leads many people to ignore both their freedom and their responsibility by letting other people make their choices for them, resulting in bad faith.
