Washing

The performance of washing Bosnian flags soaked in blood, which have represented the Bosnian State or its ideology throughout its stormy history, was not made by accident in 2011 in politically and ethnically divided Mostar. Washing those insignia of both uniqueness and diversity, which integrate and disintegrate at the same time, symbolically represent spiritual cleaning with the purpose of better acceptance of the other and different.
