I Will Never Talk About War Again (2011) is a collaborative video performance that we, Lana Čmajčanin and Adela Jušić, made as an outcome of an understanding of how much the subject of war is present in our everyday lives. It is omnipresent, not only in our conversations where we tell the same stories over and over to each other, but also when we try to share our experiences with others who have not been there, trying to describe to them what we survived, how other people around us lived throughout the years of war, hoping that the listeners are capable of understanding, picturing, imagining, those extraordinary bare-life conditions.
