A WAR E – Kostas Stasinopoulos (ed.)

Jušić repetitively draws a red mark, reminiscent of children’s drawings, yet goes beyond personal traumatic circumstances in a deathly identification with the aggressor, repeatedly counting his victims. She explores the danger of “yield[ing] to the compulsion to repeat, which [can] replace the impulsion to remember”. The counting and listing of war casualties become prominent and Jušić turns our attention to the uniformity of loss beyond ethnic, religious and sociopolitical issues.                                                                                                                                     -Kostas Stasinopoulos
