Does violence at its core possess a theatricality which lacks mediation? 
Perhaps it places the victim - and the victim of its images - at its 
core. Where there is - and the 'there is' would constitute the moment of 
action taking place in its 'theatricality' - a negation that occupies 
the victim... by overcoming the individual?

The mediation is the impossible act of the subject, impossible to 
perform. Is this why it is lacking?
