International 2002

The themes in the International 2002 concern the interplay between passion and desire on the one hand, and frustration of the mechanisms of control on the other. Control – the will to dominate our social or material environment – is a necessary fact of life for every person, but perhaps more evident in a city in which many people have to struggle for material necessities. The realities of natural and artificial environments, of political and social institutions, of mischief and fantasy all frustrate the impulse to organise our surroundings in order to satisfy our desires.
