Life at the counter: managing misery

Abstract: Life at the counter is the day-to-day work of the administration, a universe apparently of routine and anonymity, but whose balance is precarious and whose protagonists can never be reduced to the standardized roles that the institution expects them to adopt. Life at the counter is also made up of identities that are recomposed, of singular lives that are told and which, in a certain way, are determined in the secrecy of a service booth in an administrative office.
