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.
