A Confirmation of Civil Unrest

Avi Pitchon at the First NSK Citizens Congress 23.10.2010, Berlin

I, NSK Diplomat, Congressman and Timekeeper, have answered “no” in IRWIN’s referendum regarding “An Apology for Modernity”, presented at the NSK State’s Venice Pavilion, for two crucial reasons.

1. once the NSK State shifts from art to politics, it by definition shifts from time to space, it forfeits its mastery over its infinite probablities and willingly collapses into the measurable present. Thus, the NSK State effectively ceases to exist

2. The apology is such an ultimate manifestation of #1, that I’m tempted to think it’s some trick; a Houdini disappearing act…But as long as that is apparently not the case, my answer remains “no” – however, that is not because I necessarily disagree with the contents of the apology, but precisely because, nuances (west, modernism, 1968) aside, the general sentiment expressed in it is something everyone can/would agree with, especially in the current zeitgeist of ‘artivism’ prevalent in biennales, documentas et al. It is turning our state from a mischievious, trickster fairy to an obediant, tame beauty queen.

My loyalty to the NSK State have always stemmed from trusting it to say and do what no one else says or does. With this apology, the NSK State loses relevance, and not gains any. It becomes assimilated. And then burns in a horrible flash, like a vampire native of the black star exposed to the blinding light of the transient.

I will not stand back and watch the NSK State loses its nerves.

Basking in the Light of a Black and White Sun


by on Nov.20, 2010, under Articles


It is no wonder that us delegates of the First NSK Citizen’s Congress do not haste in submitting our reports, for we are destined to serve as poets, and not clerks, of statist organisation. Our grasp of diplomatic duty is therefore fanatical, capricious and stormy,

and it is in this context that I therefore applaud the words expressed on our beloved NSK Times in honour of the ‘rebel document’ – we are indeed all suspended between a lifetime of otherness, autonomy, upheaval and individuality and a yearning to belong – to find a place to call home (Heimat), to which we would be willingly giving our souls away.
