Boris Šincek was an officer of the Croatian military during the recent war in Croatia. He took part directly in the "social Oedipal drama" (Boris Buden) that aroused chaos and an eruption of violent and suicidal drives in the whole of society. Having survived the war, he staged a situation in which he was shot at again, this time in an artistic context. Like every ritual this too had a pre-linguistic, immediately symbolic dimension that inhered in the act of absolution of the guilt/defilement that Šincek the man feels with respect to Šincek the warrior.
