The Photobook Exhibition "Raving Madness / Coming Home", curated by Calin Kruse, will be displayed during the OBSCURA Festival in Georgetown, Malaysia, as one of the three Photobok Shows.
While our own state of mind is a vibrating string of uniform motion, the political, social, economical and personal changes seem to pass us with lightning speed, going above and through us like an uncontrollable steamroller. The fast and surprising flashing of conflicts make the space around and between us become an unstable place: On the one side, never knowing what will happen next and being prepared for the worst, and on the other side - being forged by the emotions and learning to be guided by basic trust. With these two elements in a state of calm and chaos, there seems to be only one exit: raving madness, or coming home.
