NSK State Reserve Exhibition in Berlin


by on Jan.02, 2020, under Exhibitions


NSK State Reserve Exhibition Opening – Wert Neu Denken

Openning: Saturday, 18 January 2020
Venue: Staalplaat, Kienitzer Str. 108, 12049 Berlin, Germany

Established in 2015, the NSK State Reserve manages the currency supply for the virtual state established by art collective Neue Slowenische Kunst (NSK). While the individual notes are intriguing artifacts of the state, the broader purpose of the agency is to create a circulating medium which connects citizens of this state. To date, The NSK State Reserve has created and distributed thousands of these notes. In the tradition of occupying powers, these notes are created through a process of overprinting and hand stamping on a substrate of already existing currency, creating a parasitic relationship with the original issuer. Often the currency’s host is a “dead” currency, either retired from circulation or issued by a state which no longer exists. Hence the motto of the NSK State Reserve: New Life for Old Money.

This exhibition includes currency, bonds, and other works related to the NSK State Reserve, including collaborations with NSK State citizen Valnoir Montesange. This exhibition will run until mid Febuary 2020! (continue reading…)

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.

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.
