The Third International NSK State Dacha will be held Saturday, December 26th 2015 at 8:00PM
The NSK State Dacha is an annual citizen-driven initiative and temporary sovereign zone in the central New Mexican Desert. NSK Citizens and guests are invited to spend a holiday evening in an old Norwegian style log villa located on Highland Hill, where it once overlooked tuberculosis sanitariums, a psychiatric asylum, and breathtakingly crimson sunsets. Hosted by artist david K., past events have included NSK-related projections and programming, exhibitions, and LAIBACH tribute musical performances.
This year the Dacha presents an interactive multimedia installation – Nationalist Sound Klinik – a collective of musicians and sound artists featuring members of Enemy Tone, Unnatural Element, and Wurm. The aim of Nationalist Sound Klinik is to address the human condition while critiquing political and media reaction to the atrocities occurring in Syria and the resulting refugee crisis.
Visitors without NSK State passports will be issued appropriate visa documentation.
Libations will be available (guests must be 21+).
ADMISSION IS FREE, BUT AN INVITATION IS REQUIRED
The opening of the exhibition NSK FROM KAPITAL TO CAPITAL took place on Monday, 11 May 2015 at the Moderna galerija in Ljubljana.

30 years after the creation Neue Slowenische Kunst, join us for an evening exploring the aesthetic universe and the state created by these challenging Slovene artists. This special evening will take place in London’s historic Horse Hospital, site of the first NSK Rendez-Vous London and the London launch of the NSK Congress book State of Emergence.
After almost four years of planning, writing and editing, a totally updated and extended German version of Alexei Monroe’s book on Laibach and NSK will be released by Ventil Verlag this March. “Laibach & NSK – Die Inquisitionsmaschine im Kreuzverhör” includes material covering Laibach & NSK-related activities since the publication of the English 2005 edition with new photographs, contents and an extensive chronology not featured in the original book.
