Houses of Freedom
The peculiar design of private houses in early 90’s Lithuania is a result of ambition to build a house with your own hands. Most of these houses deny conventional thought pattern and demonstrate daring decisions. They are highly personalised to fit the taste of the owner. The sudden rise of these houses mark an important historical event - Lithuania’s independence from Soviet Union.
When Does Absurd Become Absurd?
With my thesis I dig deeper behind the definition of absurd, to understand its necessary conditions. For this reason I chose Albert Camus 'The Myth of Sisyphus and Other Essays' (1942). Written in the midst of World War II, when the meaning of a human life seemed to be at its lowest, this book appeared to be credible to say the least. With the newly acquired knowledge I will look into subjectively selected artists and their work with an aim to understand whether absurd in an artwork is implicit or explicit, is the absurdity a result of artistry or is it already there in the subject itself?
