“Yes,of course it hurts” is the result of a strong impression from reading the wonderful poem of the same name by Karin Boye, a profound and acute reflection on the necessity of pain in our lives as a moment of transmutation and understanding of its inevitability. A pain that already accompanied us, but that we must not fear, because it is at that moment, when we free ourselves from the fear of pain … that we create

our world.
