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.

The NSK State Pavilion, alongside an event that is defined by cultural ambitions, provides the unique opportunity to rethink what a contemporary state should be. In particular, NSK State-in-Time offers an open form of citizenship that contrasts markedly with the spatial states. This pavilion will therefore put the issues that most trouble the states of today – migration, citizenship, history and identity. Given its location in Venice, it will also provoke questions about European heritage and its relation to the actual people living here. This pavilion will seek to generate ideas from a range of individuals about how to build new collectivities and shared histories between peoples. While fragmentation and antagonism seems to be the only prospects for Europe’s immediate future, NSK Pavilion will try to look beyond the deprived horizon and try to imagine a new community.  (continue reading…)

What is the experience of a state that is not based on territory but on time? In 1992, under different historical circumstances but with political resonance to the contemporary moment, the Slovenian art collective NSK transformed into a national apparatus called the State in Time. Although it does not hold any permanent territory, the State in Time is the virtual home to over 15,000 citizens worldwide, many of them artists. The State issues passports and offers citizens rights of participation, provoking open-ended actions of the citizens as they work out self-constitution, currency, education systems, founding myths, military, production of folk culture, and other state functions.
