Master-Thesis: "the or"

Supervision: Prof. Ute Eitzenhöfer, Prof. Eva-Maria Kollischan, Prof. Theo Smeets


"The or (O ou) is a Master’s thesis that investigates the sacred conception in contemporary life and its relation with the idea of preciousness by crossing ethnological and field investigations.
The work is a development from the authorial tryptic „holy, hole, whole“.
It explores the relations between apparent paradoxes as "in and out", "fullness and nothingness", "whole and void" based on the language: interwining formal and colloquial meanings, sounds, mouth shapes to pronounce.
The limit, the place in between, „the or“ is here the focus."
