2nd NSK State Folk Art Biennale: NSK Folk Art Rising 1916-2016
The 2nd NSK State Folk Art Biennale will be held at Burren College of Art, Ireland, in 2016
June 30 – August 5, Burren College of Art, Co. Clare, Ireland
CALL FOR ARTISTS
The NSK State in Time was created in 1992 as a conceptual art project of the Neue Slowenische Kunst collective (founded in Ljubljana in 1984). It was intended as response to the break up of Yugoslavia and was also the natural culmination of NSK’s state-like artistic actions of the previous years. As a virtual state in time and without territory, the NSK State interrogates nationalism, ideology and the relationship between authority and utopian desire in relation to social formations. Since its formation over 14,000 people have become NSK citizens and they have increasingly self-organised in the wake of the 1st NSK Citizens’ Congress in Berlin in 2010, and the 1st NSK Folk Art Biennale in Leipzig in 2014. Other recent citizen-organised events have taken place in Lyon, London, Manchester and New York. Alongside founding NSK collective members, the Biennale featured NSK Folk Art, works generated by NSK citizens who appropriated, reprocessed and redeployed NSK aesthetics, state iconography and motifs to critically examine the contemporary nation state and the often ambiguous nature of the radical alternative posed by the NSK State in Time.
The 2nd NSK State Folk Art Biennale will be held at Burren College of Art, Ireland, in 2016. The Burren (or Boireann in Irish) means “stony place,” and is a limestone landscape of cairns, dolmens, and other megalithic structures. A catalyst in the development of the 2nd NSK Folk Art Biennale was the fact that geology in this region has been classified as karst, a word derived from the Kras region in Slovenia, and that karstological terms of Slovene origin like doline and polje have entered the common parlance for local geographic features.
The Biennale will be the second major NSK related event in Ireland, following NSK events held in 2004 in conjunction with the expansion of the European Union, including an exhibition, performances, and the opening of an NSK passport office in Dublin.
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

A COZY STATE CEREMONY BY NSK STAAT LIPSK
OF TOMAŽ HOSTNIK’S 30th DAY OF DEATH (*1961 + 1982)
The original vocalist of Laibach, Tomaž Hostnik, killed himself by hanging from a kozelec, a Slovenian hay drying scaffold. His brutally dehumanized performance in Laibach’s monumental spectacle has since fascinated fans and critics alike; the mortuary cult surrounding the late frontman complements and contrasts with the staging of Laibach and NSK as anonymous collectives.
Serving ginger bread and glogg, NSK STAAT LIPSK presents screenings, music and critical knowledge about the subject, as well as a preview of NSK State activities in 2013 featuring guest speakers from NSK STAAT DRESDEN and NSK Nuernbach-Laiberg.
