ANAESTHESIA edited by Valentina Abenavoli is now available at the Tipi Bookshop.
At which point do you say it’s enough?
The constant exposure to media coverage of war and terrorism has forced us to erect shields of apparent protection. We are hopeless, in accepting reality as it is shown to us, manipulated, in not understanding beyond it, numb and selfish, in not being able to feel empathy anymore.
The book Anaesthesia examines the practise of documenting and exploiting reality, according to nonfictional material (screenshots from tv channels’ documentaries found on internet) translated into a new fictional editing, in which the aim is to declare neutrality in terms of authorship and give space for critical thoughts.
