Are we experiencing cultural critique fatigue?

Can we truly embrace the diversity within our identities for a more authentic self? That's exactly what the new report by Paradigm Trilogy prompts us to think about. Katharina Korbjuhn, the creative force behind the trilogy, addresses the idea that people are tired of constant cultural criticism and analyses.

She believes that sharing personal narratives can counter this fatigue, and the goal with the report is to encourage people to look inside and form their own thoughts, rather than dictating answers.

“I wanted to tackle larger topics that connect all of us, that are constant and eternal. I didn’t want to write theories. I wanted people to come to their own conclusions, so it was more about triggering associations or emotions and asking questions rather than giving answers or being an authority at all.”
- Katharina Korbjuhn

In "Recognition vs Expression," Korbjuhn explores the tension between what society expects from us and our true selves, urging us to embrace our multifaceted nature. The report breaks the mould by presenting its insights through a 25-minute short film that you can’t pause. The interactive aspect of the film compels us to take ownership of our personal narratives by asking reflective questions about relationships, personal truths, and success, promoting self-discovery and alignment with our true desires.

Check out Paradigm Trilogy’s report and experience the interactive format firsthand. And we invite you to share, what insights did you gain about yourself while engaging with the film?
