WISDOM

In the beginning came the attack on Mankind’s freedom. Oppression, repression, torture, war, massacres for the crime of difference, colour, political position, religious conviction: everything serves as a pretext to enslave the other. Yes, in the beginning, there was the State, unwilling or unable to guarantee the freedom of the citizen. Sometimes its passivity renders it silently complicit. Then, the only road to survival is exodus. At the end of this sometimes difficult road, which often involving risking one’s life, risking exile, leading to those welcoming lands of sanctuary, there is a refuge where everyone tries to survive, to rebuild their lives. In oneself, the memory of the lost country and the disappointment of the promised land. Beyond the joy of being free, in oneself, the physical and intellectual fracture of mourning for one’s own land. A smell, a taste, a landscape, the melody of one’s language, the rhythm of one’s country: the joys of the exile’s present are full of the memories of the past. In the elsewhere to be constructed, the exile advances along the intimate frontier between his internal war and peace.

Inspired by Reza’s book War+Peace
