IRWIN. WO DENKST DU HIN?!

From September 26th 2015 to January 10th 2016 Kunsthalle Osnabrück will show “IRWIN: Wo denkst du hin?!“. The title refers to a German saying which, with its spatial connotation, is impossible to translate. You use it in conversations, when you believe that your interlocutor is drawing the wrong conclusions. You make him notice that, but do not correct him.

From Kapital to Capital – The first major exhibition of NSK

Neue Slowenische Kunst (NSK) From Kapital to Capital Neue Slowenische Kunst (NSK)
From Kapital to Capital

12 May–17 August 2015

Press preview: Monday, 11 May, 8pm
Opening: Tuesday, 12 May, 8pm

Moderna galerija / MG+MSUM

Curator: Zdenka Badovinac

In 1984, three groups—the multimedia group Laibach (established 1980), the visual arts group Irwin (1983), and the theatre group Scipion Nasice Sisters Theatre (SNST) (1983–87)—founded the Neue Slowenische Kunst (NSK) art collective. That same year, the three groups founded a fourth group, the design department New Collectivism. Later NSK established other subdivisions: the Department of Pure and Applied Philosophy, Retrovision, Film, and Builders.

From Kapital to Capital is the first major exhibition of NSK, the art collective that loudly and clearly proclaimed the emperor naked back in the 1980s, when everybody still—or merely—pretended to believe in the socialist self-management of the slowly disintegrating Yugoslavia. In 1982, Laibach produced a poster titled Death of Ideology; it included pictures of Marx, Engels, and Lenin. It was clear even back then that the only one profiting from Marx’s critique of capitalism was capital, which had already started “saving” the bankrupt socialist economies through the IMF.

Neue Slowenische Kunst (NSK)

In 1990, the Noordung Cosmokinetic Cabinet (the successor of the Scipion Nasice Sisters Theatre and the Red Pilot) staged a production titled Kapital; in 1991, Irwin published a book and staged an exhibition titled Kapital; in 1992, Laibach released an album titled Kapital. In this way, NSK reiterated what it had performed in the early 1980s: the end of ideology and the beginning of total capitalism.
