The performance XXX YU considers the phenomenon of ex-Yugoslav war crimes from a gender perspective. Who is the real lair of war criminals? Although the violence of the war is firmly rooted in the patriarchal principles of men, the hidden Oedipus emerges from the psychoanalytic substrate that is fabricated by the Mother. It was her sin that was ultimately passed on to the Son, through her own milk, the milk of the Nation, distorted the male and female principles, and finally led to the travesty of War.
