The double secret

Max Dorra

20,00 €
Rarely acknowledged – especially by men, who believe it to be a “sign of weakness” – anxiety is the most universal and concealed feeling. “Not up to par! There are words that kill because they damage the image we have of ourselves. All of a sudden, our ideas, associations, memories come to confirm that we are, indeed, in the delirious world of profitability, a “worthless” being. As during the editing of a film certain elements are retained and all the others eliminated, the editing of memory only retains this agonizing evidence, in which one feels trapped. Strange, intimate encounter, a dream sometimes brings us this precious certainty: another montage is possible.
