Life is full of decisions. Being free can mean the freedom to choose one’s own individual identity. In Der freie Mensch, the main protagonist and anti-hero F(rank) considers whether such freedom resides in the pleasure of decision-making or in the constantly open range of possibilities available. The work presents his everyday decisions in a series of 23 brief sequences.
