This work brings a reflection on the violence showing, at the same time, its meaningless use, and its spectacular physical and psychological power. Moreover the work refers to a new type of violence that occurred in the last years especially between adolescents. It is a violence not used with ideological or utilitarian reasons, but in a spectacular and meaningless way to attract attention. The attack is often coming back against the instigators themselves. The Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek defines this violence “Id-Evil”, in Italian: “Male-Es”, title of the video.
