A partisan, says Artur Klinau, is not only a heroic guy with the gun in his hand. “He is also a diagnosis. Pathological state of consciousness with deep-seated fears in response to historical trauma-related”. A partisan is a typical Belarus figure which associated in Belarus with II World War. Using this concept, Klinau created a new myth – partisan as Belarusians’ state of mind, when culture and art are the only way out of the deep misery of his country. As this strategy looks like, it is this book. edition.photoTAPETA
