Have I made enough use of my talents? Do I manage to balance between work, family and friends? Am I successful enough and if not: is it not my own fault? In our contemporary world obsessed with high performance and self-control we tend to turn into our very personal relentless judges. We blaim ourselves rather than society. We go and see a therapist, personal coach or yoga instructor instead of joining a union or a demonstration. In looking back at Kafka’s classic novel, which reveals striking motives relevant for the 21st century, Interrobang turns the inner tribunal of the self-responsible neoliberal human being outwards into a public trial.
