THE BIG QUESTION: WHAT WE HAVE BECOME
The past 2020 has changed all of us. We stayed at home. We abruptly stopped traveling. We hid behind masks. We work, study, cook, watch theaters, concerts and sports competitions at home.
When we meet by chance on the street, we avoid shaking hands, let alone hugging or kissing.
We accepted it as normal to voluntarily give up freedoms that until yesterday we considered irrevocable.
The big question that excites us this year is “What have we become”?
Did the tight time at home – with the partner, with the children, with the parents, make us closer or show misunderstanding and imitation of relationships?
Did the intense presence in the online space, which replaced the real work process, turn us into a team or bring out differences and suspicions towards each other?
Studying online at home, protecting children and teachers, or setting problems that an army of psychologists will find difficult to solve tomorrow?
Did our rare live social contacts help us stay physically healthy or ruin our already fragile friendships?
Who are we today, what are we today? What have we become? These are the questions we ask this year at the Goat Milk Festival of Memories.
