Brave, mysterious, frightful, rude, cute, compliant, obscene – what kind of mask are you wearing today?
Throughout history masks have been used in religious or social ceremonies, the treatment of diseases, celebrations and wars. The mask bearer has been able to alter her or his relationship with the surrounding world. Under the safety of masks, a person can forget their everyday identity and transform into someone else. In carnivals, a person doesn’t need to mind what others are thinking, and they can unchain their wildest emotions. On the other hand, masks offer protection – we all have our everyday masks that keep our inner core safe.
We have created a trustworthy environment where under the protection of masks, the viewer can bring up thoughts they are not able to reveal normally. Come to confess your inner thoughts and secrets anonymously or release your happiness, sadness, shame, excitement or anger. You can also come to see what’s going on on the other side of the masks of people around you.
