> Shared Space – Space of Negotiations
The most intriguing moment in the process of creating the theatric scenery is when one bare thought of stage set engages in dialogue with other actors in the play. A common space is then established – shared space – the space of negotiations, potential, relations, politics, conflicts of different interests, when absolute author no longer exists.

> Belgrade in the room
The process of creating urban scenarios in one room is not a political innovation. The authors suggest that the City and deliberation about space belong to everyone. Civic activism is necessary when it comes to urban policy. They reaffirm their “ownership of the street space” and invite others to do the same.
> The Traitor
In the context of the construction of national identities in the former Yugoslavia, which occurs through the negation of the Other without exception, Frljić affirms the position of a traitor, one who is willing to enter a space that is already occupied and defined by identity.
> Space disobedient to monitoring
Space and time are full of material and semiotic information almost impossible to perceive due to reaching the saturation point. Even if the viewer could see it “all”, he does not have neither the time nor the capacity to process heterogeneous nature of data, signals, false or true traces and trajectories of the accumulated material.

What attitude to take towards past and something yet to come? What does it mean to destroy/shelter everything that is already there? On the other hand, what does it mean to leave and agree to all? What can I get as a guest, how can I essentially (or necessarily) contribute (create)? How will those coming after us refer to us and our traces?
> From safety to where?
Safety and security are the big words of contemporary political speech, but what happens in the case of complete ignorance of all the safety protocols in simulation of a chaotic and unsafe situation, the emergence of chaos, biologically unpredictable movement, absence of consciousness and the force that accompanies chaos?

What is the role of the Church in liberal capitalism? The audience represents the performer and the viewer just as it would be placed in the religious context of institution of the temple/church. Church visitors perform a ritual practice in the ‘Holy Temple’, showing their attitude towards certain canonized context by their behavior.
> Performing the archive
Archive, a place that keeps data about the collective traumatic past, carries certain potential for rearticulating the relation to dominant narratives about events that had marked previous periods. Performing the materials stored in archive at the same time offers a new view on the material and the dominant historical narratives about the past.
> In the beginning was the Word. And nothing.
What does the word mean to us today? Critical or love words, insignificant in the world of catastrophic images. I am thinking, therefore I talk. We reconsider the word in public space and public speech through the spoken and audible. Accusatory and gently. How to deal with it? Does criticism have any sense in torrent of words with(out) meaning?

> „Clothes does (not) make the (wo)man“ better
It is said that clothes do not make a man, but we are all actually being evaluated based on looks. What happens when our clothes speak? Unspoken words and inhibited emotions (anger, joy, sadness, fear, love) speak out when we get dressed. Based on the practices of J. Cage and B. Maubrey the work deals with the issue of identity through sound.
