NSK from Kapital to Capital: Neue Slowenische Kunst – The Event of the Final Decade of Yugoslavia

Uredniki: Zdenka Badovinac, Eda Čufer in Anthony Gardner

Soizdajatelj in distributer: MIT Press

 

Po razstavi z istim naslovom je izšla obsežna publikacija, ki predstavlja delo umetniškega kolektiva Neue Slowenische Kunst (NSK) tekom osemdesetih let prejšnjega stoletja. Začne se z zgodnjim delom skupine Laibach in ustanovitvijo NSK-ja, ki je prevzel simbole, kode in motive od nasprotujočih si ideologij in umetniških tradicij. Knjiga predstavlja t. i. primarne dokumente, artefakte iz tistega časa in raziskovalna besedila , ki podajajo njihov kontekst; s tem nam omogoča povsem nov vpogled v širjenje in recepcijo NSK-ja v desetletju, zaznamovanem s socialnimi nemiri, ki so vodili do konca Jugoslavije in socializma. Uredniki so k sodelovanju povabili več piscev, ki v svojih besedilih kontekstualizirajo primarne dokumente in tudi (ponatisnjena) besedila zgodnjih kritikov in komentatorjev, ter s tem razširili in poglobili znanstveno poznavanje tedanje umetnosti in kulture.

 

Knjiga v angleščini je naprodaj v knjigarni DEPO (+MSUM) in knjigarni Moderne galerije.


Razstava je del petletnega programa Rabe umetnosti – dediščina let 1848 in 1989, ki ga vodi konfederacija muzejev Internacionala.
