WITHIN tells of that primordial place, the centre of all centres: the home. Home is that space in life which we all know, no matter how small it is. A space we might not be aware of, but which is there, buried somewhere. A space which, before taking on the form of a place, was – and remains – a mental space.

WITHIN unfolds in Geneva, in the district around the Vernets barracks. It delves into the spaces of life and the encounters with its inhabitants. These may be young or old, live as a couple, with a family or alone, and they all take us into their homes. These domestic chronicles evolve between the military barracks at the edge of the blocks of flats and the insane asylum which had occupied the space in the past; through these chronicles and the history of the place, the question arises for each spectator: what, then, is my place within?
