‘The qualitative leap through pain, across the mournful landscapes of nostalgic yearning, is the gesture of active creation of affirmative ways of belonging. It is a fundamental reconfiguration of our way of being in the world, which acknowledges the pain of loss, but moves further. Ultimately, it is a practice of freedom. That is the defining moment of the process of becoming-ethical: the move across and beyond pain, loss and negative passions’ (Braidotti 2006: 84)
Europe is going nuts.
