A Fractured Mind?, a triptych by the Slovenian composer Petra Strahovnik, explores the way we treat mental health in society. A combination of music, video, performance, and electronics reveals the underlying thoughts and emotions of someone with a mental illness. Artist Jürgen Fritz, who designed the work together with Strahovnik, intensively trained the musicians of Modelo62 for their performance art. This ensemble from The Hague has earned their widespread fame with their high-level, versatile, and innovative approach to contemporary experimental music. With this intensely personal work, Strahovnik tries to break a taboo.
