How might we speak about law? Models of reading are the key that give the access to the power of naming, therefore they are guarded. “Dreams&Dramas” takes on the relationship between law and reality and points out its ambivalent nature: law both describes and establishes reality, it also brings us to life - as legal subjects or citizens. The interpenetration of the world, law and text also forces us to ask questions about differentmodels of perception and interpretation of law: law as justice and justice as law.
