Lecture: Ivo Saliger (Laibach)

by on Oct.13, 2013, under Events

Ivo Saliger will talk about the genesis, the context, the reactions, and the results of the television interview “XY-UNSOLVED” from 1983


In 1983 the band Laibach consented to give an interview to the Slovenian national television – but on their conditions: the interview was to be held in Ljubljana in an exhibition space of the Galerija Škuc and with their own exhibition in the background, and the journalist’s questions were to be made available to the band in advance. In response to the questions “Can you tell us something about yourselves? Who are you and what do you do for a living? Are all of you present or are there more of you?,” Laibach answered as follows: “We are the children of the spirit and the brothers of strength, whose promises are unfulfilled. We are the black phantoms of this world, we sing the mad image of woe. We are the first TV generation.”
