“Interrogation Room takes observation and the concealed gaze of both psychiatry and cinema as its theme. The setting of a room with a one way mirror seems in the cinema sometimes to be an interrogation room, sometimes to be a room with a mirror, and sometimes an interview room, and in certain circumstances both psychiatry and criminal investigation share the same method of spatial observation. In this coldest of rooms, either a report or a confession is being written, while an invisible third person observes the situation from behind a one-way mirror. The focus of my work is the voyeuristic gaze and the constructedness of the setting, in which in the mirror, the border between observation and surveillance becomes blurred.Psychiatry in Austria got rid of rooms such as these as a result of the psychiatry reforms of the1970s, but have been sporadically reintroduced in family therapy. Similar to the mirror in the interrogation room, the screen is a membrane in the dark room of the cinema. Here we find the psychology of the figures, here it is about gradually forming a picture of the patient’s history from fragments. This picture eventually leads to a diagnosis for the therapist, and becomes a filmic experience for the audience.”
