Guilty!


Artistic action by Boris Kadin

Guilty! is a public reading of accusations against the crime of economic genocide of humanity. In his accusations Boris is asking who is guilty that we are gradually loosing our right to water, air and life itself. Who is guilty for economic murder of Republic of Croatia, who took away his nine years old daughter’s right to the future? Boris knows that the search for the guilty ones is naïve, meaningless and lost in advance. It is easier to believe that the world became too complicated for a mission like this. In the global world only victims exist. Global democracy has the dimension of the ancient Greeks’ fate – guilt is hidden deeply inside the victim. This is the beauty of globalism. Therefore the culprits Boris seeks among victims – the IMF executive board and managing director, and passes the invitation to his audience to decide about their guilt.

Guilty! is the artistic action that is currently performed in ex-Yugoslavia cities (Ljubljana, Zadar, Dubrovnik, Beograd, Novi Sad, Pančevo, Bihać, Tuzla, Sarajevo, Banja Luka…). After each performance Boris sends his accusations and decision of his audience to the IMF e-mail address.
