To Nowhere

How I overcame my depression and got to know myself anew

Reading and music with Byung Jin Park

In March 2021, Byung Jin Park, also known as herrpandabär on social media, published his autobiographical book "Ins Leere gelaufen." As part of the exhibition "Suicide - Let's talk about it!" he will read passages from it and accompany us and our guests with ukulele and conversation.

About the book:

"Could it be that you have depression?" Byung Jin Park is perplexed, actually the lawyer had consulted the psychotherapist about a completely different matter. But after this conversation, he has to admit to himself that she is right: He hasn't dreamed of restful sleep for a long time, the workdays are a single torment, his life feels empty.

When he finds himself completely idle months later, he decides to finally face up to his diagnosis and seek inpatient treatment. Slowly, he searches for his feelings and in the process learns to accept his depression. With his moving account, Park encourages sufferers to come to terms with their own mental suffering in order to find their way back into life.

Byung Jin Park is a lawyer and in-house counsel. He moved with his family from South Korea to Germany in 1995. He blogs at nestchenliebe.de and tweets as @herrpandabaer on the topic of depression, among other things, and openly about his personal experiences.
