NSK STATE SARAJEVO at History Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina


by on Apr.03, 2018, under Events, Exhibitions, NSK State


Sarajevo and Laibach have particularly strong connection, which is mostly reflected by the fact that Laibach is one of the groups that had a concert in besieged Sarajevo – on the same date when the signing of the Dayton Peace Agreement was held. More than two decades after the “Historical Concert” History Museum of BiH opened the 1995 Laibach Concert Story that was presented as “NSK State Sarajevo” exhibition. The story of the concert is told via exlusive photographs made by Zoran Kanlić, testimonies and documents of citizens of Sarajevo.

NSK State in Time – A transnational heterotopia?


by on Oct.23, 2017, under Articles


Laibach Reproduction Prohibited

 

Dear NSK citizens,

My name is Moritz Bühler and I’m studying geography in Mainz, Germany. I decided to write an exam about the NSK State in Time and its relationship towards other spaces and states. Especially the possibility of the NSK State to reflect, represent and invert conventional spaces is what I’m interested in.

I decided to analyze this topic with the help of theory established and developed by Michel Foucault: Heterotopias. In a short sentence: Heterotopias are places, which are connected to all other places by reflecting, representing or inverting them, and they have a special function that can change during the time. For me it looks like an interesting and possible perspective because of the transnational, immaterial or just temporal materialized characteristics as well as playing with these dystopian and totalitaristic structures.

Therefore I’m searching for interview partners to get the point of view of a citizen. The interviews will be via skype. If somebody is interested just send me an email: mbuehler@students.uni-mainz.de, I can also send you my thesis if you want. It’s not that I´m searching for experts, it will be a qualitative interview were we just talk about your experiences, impressions…

Best regards,

Moritz Bühler

On this day in NSK State: FOLKART RISING 1916 – 2016


by on Jun.29, 2017, under Events


One year ago, a transnational group of NSK State citizens, artists and allies gathered in the far West of Ireland for the 2nd NSK State Folk Art Biennale. Following on from the 1st Biennale in Leipzig in 2014, the event was based at The College of The Burren, Ballyvaughan, Co. Clare, including the historic Newtown Castle, which hosted three live actions on the opening night. The event also spread into and interacted with the unique limestone landscape of The Burren, running down to the dramatic Atlantic coast. Here we present a selection of photos from this memorable event. If you have photos of your own you’d like to share, please send them here or share on our Facebook page.
