Discipline consists of a thick leather man’s belt with a mighty buckle hanging on a peg. The installation refers to the problem of corporal punishment, its role and usefulness in children’s upbringing, and the ongoing social discussion about this subject.
A belt hanging in the kitchen or the living room used to be synonymous with a man’s heavy hand and uncompromising child-rearing methods. It served the role of a deterrent, reminding the household members of the consequences of disobedience, protest, or even carefreeness. It also symbolised giving vent to frustration and aggression, and the inability to establish relationships with children.
