Ilija Šoškić draws excerpts from past works–Conversation, Controversy, Arm-wrestling and Maximum Energy – Minimum Time–to be performed anew, reinterpreting those seminal actions within the context of the present.

The performance Maximum Energy – Minimum Time adapts its costuming commemorate the suicide of Vladimir Mayakovsky, a Russian Soviet poet. Dressed in a Red Army uniform, Šoškić performed Mayakovsky’s death, where he fashioned himself a soldier. Šoškić does not mourn Mayakovsky, nor does he create a martyr’s sage out of his “soldier’s death”. For him, Mayakovsky is here a vital figure, a true militant poet.
