Longing and Obsession
Where there’s a void, there’s a longing. Anyone who feels something’s missing longs for fulfilment - the threat of personal failure always in mind. Sometimes it’s the gushing longing for the all-encompassing big love, sometimes the utopian hope of making the world a better place. But whether it’s a personal longing or a political one, all longings have one thing in common: the risk of losing sight of the original goal and succumbing to surrogates. In the end we get what we don’t want and we want what we haven’t got. Stories about people with very different longings.
