    There is a series of exhibitions hiding under the umbrella title of “Inner museum”, and the first one is dedicated to the phenomenon of solitude. Almost all social and natural sciences agree that humans are primarily social beings. Social interactions determine our character, our actions and our moral values to a large degree. Starting from the very first contact with our parents or guardians, through the adaptation to new environments (school), to the purposeful participation in the community, intersubjective relations are essential for normal human development. Language acquisition, developing behavioural social patterns, compassion, intelligence, etc. are just some of the properties which we perceive as positive and automatically associate with sociability. On the other hand, the majority of deviations in human development – from childhood to socially responsible adulthood – are associated with the absence or some kind of a deficiency in the socialization process. Popular culture, proverbially prone to simplification, thus portrays people who prefer solitude as weirdos living on the social margins of class, space, ethics or aesthetics.
