Common tongue 

about

During the action with Anton Malynovskyi, we tried to explore the opinion that is very common among the people in Western Europe - the opinion that Ukrainians and ruzzians need to find a "common language (спільна мова (Ukrainian), literally is common tongue)".
We tried to fasten our tongues with binders.
We took it to a hyperbolized, physical level to achieve maximum absurdity.
Our goal is simple – to prove to ourselves and the audience how silly this intention looks.
It seems to us that with such a simple and absurd action, we raise not only the issue of the impossibility of reconciliation with the enemy but also the mother language issue, which is extremely relevant now.
