In tumultuous times where we live traumatic experiences, we feel how the foundations of our identity are shaking before an evident change. And I mean both individual identity and the identity that transforms human race into unity.

Oliver Czarnetta was walking around a flea market when he found a box with old photos from the 50s, 60s and 70s. They were images that reflect the life of a family in the German Democratic Republic. On the back of some of them appeared certain details. He inspected them meticulously with a magnifying glass and he hung them on a wall, giving them an order.

Claudio Garrudo, Toshiro Yamaguchi and Oliver Czarnetta bring up, taking this group of photos as a basis, different ideas about the concept of identity.

This way, a profound meditation emerges about the basic concepts that define our personality and our relationship with others and the environment that surrounds us. The individual identity, the social identity, our relationship with the passage of time, the ego, the Ku (Japanese concept of everything and nothing), the Big Black Nothing, the historiography, the fragmentary identity…
