“All utopias are depressing because they leave no room to chance, to difference, to those who are ‘different’. Everything has been ordered; order reigns. Behind every utopia lies a great taxonomic design: a place for everything and every thing in its place.” — Georges Perec, Thoughts of Sorts
Hristina Tasheva: Far away from home: the voices, the body and the periphery is a project inspired by a heated debate that took place some time ago. In public, a Dutch citizen with an academic background asked me: “Are you a communist?” To understand what it means to be a communist, I have chosen to place the word in its historical contexts in the Netherlands and in Bulgaria.
