“Yes We Should”

Jan 13, 2018 - Tania Franco Klein

With this project I ended up incorporating the ideas behind the book The Burnout Society which actually came into my life in the most unintentionally way while walking on a library a few months before I started this project but it somehow came back to my thoughts when I realized everything that I was trying to portray was related to the observations on that book. Byung-Chul Han author of The Burnout Society refers to our neoliberal social tissue as one that suffers from a constant exhaustion and fatigue due to an obsession with positivity; he names it the achievement society.
