N$K: New Life for Old Money

On May 12, 2015, an event was held to mark the opening of the NSK: Kapital to Capital exhibition at the Moderna Galerija in Ljubljana, a retrospective of the first ten years of the artist meta-collective, NSK.

Behind us, at an ever-increasing distance, we see our genesis: stories about passports, artifacts as raw as flint knives. As this distance grows we must ask ourselves, how will we meet this opportunity, this new vantage point that time offers us?

A little over a year ago, in October of 2010, the first NSK Citizens’ Congress was held in Berlin. An international group of delegates convened to discuss matters of the State. Miran and other founding members of the NSK collective were present, and waited expectantly for the citizens to take the reins. There was no consensus among the delegates to do so. There was a great reluctance to stray far from our founders.
