WHO TOLD YOU SO?! #4 Truth vs. Family

“What must it be like for a little boy to read that daddy never loved mummy?” – Princes Diana

Onomatopee 75.4

This fourth and last chapter of our year-long Who told you so?! program focuses on the story of Truth vs. Family. We are familiar with our families but do we know them personally, know them deeply? We are close, but do we come close to the sources of our neighbours’ deep wishes and needs? Can we rely on family being the most natural social context and how is the indoor emancipation situated compared to the revival of the traditional housewife, twittering children and fathers imagining to undermine the traditional family structure in their private pages? What is hidden in the emancipated “official” story, in which we all keep ourselves together?

Precisely now the winter and Christmas are approaching, we must come together in mutual respect and take into account the unimaginable state of nature we configure along our mothers and daughters, brothers and fathers, uncles and aunts, grandmothers and grandfathers.
