Beschreibung (eng): The master project is four-part and comprises a research documentation, a prose poem, a poetry collection and a case study. Its essence is the proposal of a new thesis concerning the understanding of autoimmune diseases, especially of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE, lupus).
SLE is a rare autoimmune disease that can affect the skin, the joints, the nervous system and all inner organs of the affected. Its cause and pathogenesis are unknown. The project aims at providing new knowledge concerning these open questions. Its thesis is exposed in four different formats showing different ways of artistic research. It proposes to understand autoimmunity as the expression of transformative processes that cause various physical and mental effects in the afflicted organism. This ongoing metamorphosis is driven by a plan, it is about the emerging of a new being: the Lycanthropus erythematosus.
