The ritual as a container or framework to act out the forbidden

The film excerpt documenting the destruction of the Lenin Monument on Maidan 2013/2014 (Techynskyi / Solodunov / Stoykov 2014, 16:37–25:00) focuses on a group of people who gather around the already fallen Lenin statue and start smashing it with a hammer.

The scene is imbued repeatedly with ambivalences.

The first feelings that emerge when watching the film sequence are disgust and revulsion: towards the "nationalist" mob, the nationalist slogans, the violence as a form of protest, the "lynch mob". In the course of the film excerpt, tension builds up, which is perceived partly as physical tremors.
