"Posttraumatic entertainment" marks the first phase of Adnan Softić's artistic work - escaped from the war, unable to overview the great political movements; standing in front of an audience that was perhaps only interested in the spectacle of horror and in his "sacrificial figure“...
"Posttraumatic entertainment" was an attempt to renegotiate everything, in the shadow of an experienced trauma and with a self-mandate to never have to experience it again. And at the same time not to have any expectations in terms of success. For this you also have to have a sense of humor.
The insecurity and the intentional loss of control were the beginning of a language of one's own in which the trauma and above all the unspeakable are cultivated.
