I lost time and space. Where am I? – Erzählen von chronischen Schmerzen
What happens to a person’s inner and outer world when no medical procedure is able to (further) decipher the origin of an ongoing perceived pain? When pain becomes an independent clinical picture called 'chronic pain'? In a series of dialogues with pain patients and specialists, I investigate in this study – as an artist as well as someone who remembers an episode of chronic pain – how chronic pain influences and changes lives and what space it takes in the lives of people affected and those providing treatment. Or expressed as a central question: Is there room for people with chronic pain in the lives of other people, our social structure and the political system at all?
The exposition is available in German only (with English elements).
