The exhibition Dreams and Conflicts dedicate to the Slovenian group IRWIN, curated by Julia Draganović and Claudia Löffelholz of LaRete Art Projects, promoted and organised by the Galleria civica di Modena and the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Modena features a selection of works resulting from the close collaboration projects staged over the years by the collective with some of the most prominent artists from the international contemporary scene, such as Marina Abramović, Joseph Beuys and many others.
The exhibition “NSK: Past – Present – Future” marks the 30th anniversary of the founding of NSK by depicting the development of the Slovenian artist collective “Neue Slowenische Kunst” from its birth within the context of Yugoslavian alternative culture in the 80s through the founding of the NSK State in Time in 1991, and offers a glimpse into the future.
To mark the thirtieth anniversary of Irwin, the exhibition Back to the USA, which originally opened on 2 April 1984 and closed on 7 April 1984, will be repeated. The original exhibition was a reconstruction of a group exhibition

of contemporary American art which toured several Western European capitals in 1983 and 1984. Due to the size of the gallery, the Ljubljana show featured only a selection of works from the original show. Back to the USA was the first Irwin exhibition in a gallery, and as time has shown, it was their first major exhibition. (continue reading…)
The Slovenian Box
Unveiling the Neue Slowenische Kunst archive
Curatorial by Michele Drascek
18/12/2012 – 26/1/2013
Opening: 18/12/2012, 19:00
“In the 1980s, art and culture made fundamental contributions to the social and political change with which Slovenia entered the last decade of the second millennium”.
Neue Slowenische Kunst played a radical and leading role in this charged time. A highly complex and multi-faced organization, its impact extended beyond the subculture of 1980s Slovenian scene to the whole of Eastern Europe. And further.
In revealing the archive of Neue Slowenische Kunst, we give to the public the opportunity to experience the vibe that the collective brought to UK, the feelings instilled in the audience and the response provoked within the cultural scene during those years. This, through the selection and display of significant items from the Neue Slowenische Kunst archives in Slovenia and the David Gothard archive in London. In fact, in 1980s, Gothard was uncovering contemporary culture in Yugoslavia and bringing it to the attention of audiences in London and UK.
And it was in London that I came across a box of material from Slovenia almost two years ago. The resurfacing of the Slovenian archive in London started with the meeting with David Gothard. Knowing that I was based in Ljubljana, he shared his memories related to Slovenia. During long conversations, we proceed in unearthing deep connections between London and Ljubljana. And, right after, Gothard revealed the presence of an archive contained in a box labeled ‘The Slovenian Box‘. We came up with the plan to organize and file his box, containing mostly Neue Slowenische Kunst items from the 80s. The research that followed put in context the content of ‘The Slovenian Box’. Slowly we uncovered, shaped and presented the stories which form the history of Neue Slowenische Kunst.
The research developed as proper fieldwork in Ljubljana, where most of Neue Slowenische Kunst archives are located. Through meeting with Laibach member Ivan Novak, I gained access to Laibach Kunst archive at MGLC International Centre of Graphic Arts. IRWIN archive was collected in AVA Academy of Visual Arts, where IRWIN’s member Miran
Mohar and the Academy director Pepi Sekulich gave me the opportunity

be based and where from that moment on I have been collecting new material that enriched the archive. The search on New Collectivism, coordinated with Darko Pokorn, took place in his studio, which houses a systematized archive. I acquired further information on Scipion Nasice Sisters Theatre during intensive meetings with Dragan Zivadinov, held either in his studio or in Modern Art Gallery.
Building a net with the former members of Neue Slowenische Kunst enhanced the understanding of past events. The priority was to define and classify an archive. But curating an archive enables its transformation from what could be describes as a collection of items to a revealing body of knowledge. And so, the archive was exhibited in London, at Chelsea Space, giving the start to a series of successful events on Neue Slowenische Kunst that shaped new interest and enthusiasm around the collective and its powerful presence in the cultural and political scene of the Eighties.
Exhibiting archives helps all the actors involved – artists, archivists, curators, publics – to reconfigure meanings in the contemporary. It happened in London. And since every place and space has its own specificities, Stacion Center for Contemporary Art Prishtina represents a new call and challenge for the Neue Slowenische Archive. In Prishtina, particularly dear to David Gothard, the archive meets new cultural and political specificities and originates, anew, different interpretations and questions. ‘The Slovenian Box’ is brought again to
life and speaks loudly.
