ISOLATION | FREEDOM
25.8 – 30.9.2021
Throughout the past year, isolation has become an all too familiar word for most of us. A new virus has emerged and the governments had to impose lockdowns to contain its spread. But isolation is not a new thing. It has existed (literally or metaphorically) since the very beginning of our species.
Isolation. Separation. Loneliness. Remoteness. Segregation. Quarantine. Confinement. The list is endless.
Isolation can be voluntary or imposed. If it is imposed, it affects our freedom.
