This video performance drawing to attention the post-war situation in the frame of speaking about the past war. 
From personal experience comes the fact that it is impossible not to talk about the war in everyday life. In this performance we are trying to expose all the possible emotions we have about this fact, but also to point on different aspects of talking about the war, for example, how nationalistic parties use constant remembering of the war in the media to keep the power and nationalistic fronts among people in ex Yugoslavia. 
Is it possible not to talk about the war?
Why do we do it?
When will it stop? 
Will we stop? 
Should we stop?
