Why EGO?

We still have questions: why EGO? What is behind the uneasy topic of the satirical contest? Filip (our satyricon boy, a characteristic sculpture on NMP Street in Legnica) decided to ask the chairman of the Artistic Council of Satyrykon – prof. Eugeniusz Skorwider and the originator of the topic – WHY EGO?


Why EGO?

The EGO is the conscious part of the human personality.

It means our identity.

It comes from Latin and means “I”.

The negative faces of the EGO are human EGOisms, EGOcentrisms and EGOtisms.

All this is strongly related to the condition of the human species.

It is the man and his EGO that are the subject of the satirical contest.


We wish you a high level of work.

Eugeniusz Skorwider
