Writing and reading are necessary equipment for each child but poor education and school discipline measures which are imposed,
often make them repulsive.In many countries, the educational system results in children dropping out of school.
“What defines man is speech”*
The repetitive nature of punishment is deeply engraved in us.
While writing with my blood, the price of the word and repetitive process becomes me, myself.
A crime is committed, in which I take part myself, a suicidal tendency. The punisher forces me to do it with my own hand to avoid responsibility.
The “punishment notebook” is a figurative framework about how we give our own blood, how we emasculate ourselves,
how each person is self-punished. In essence, It visualizes what everyone does to themselves without actually realizing it.
*Jacques Lacan (1901-1981, French psychologist-psychiatrist)
