JOUSKA is a hypothetical conversation that is repeated compulsively in someone’s mind. In today’s world, can I express myself? communicate? …. Do I make myself heard? JOUSKA, a cathartic dialogue, a deep journey that serves as a kind of psychological cage where it seems easier to relate more deeply with people.
