1st NSK Folk Art Biennale

NSK: Past - Present – Future // 1984 – 2014 – 2045

"One such very important part of the process of NSK State is Folk Art."
Peter Mlakar, Department of Pure and Applied Philosophy, NSK Citizens Congress, Berlin 2010

The exhibition "NSK: Past - Present – Future // 1984 – 2014 – 2045" will take place at the Spinnerei, Hall 12 (WERKSCHAU) in Leipzig, Germany from April 25 through May 10, 2014.

This exhibition will display the development of the Slovenian artist collective "Neue Slowenische Kunst" from its birth within the context of Yugoslavian alternative culture in the 80s through the founding of the NSK State in Time and offer a glimpse into the future.

In addition nearly 40 citizens of the NSK State from all over the world will present a selection of their artwork within the frame of the "1st NSK Folk Art Biennale".

The exhibition will be complimented by diverse events such as performances and a film program, as well as a symposium covering the phenomena of the existence of a folk art not based on regional, religious or ethnic characteristics, but which globally articulates the self-identification with the strategies of NSK

Additional events and performances are planned for the Spinnerei gallery tour on May 3 and 4.

The exhibition is supported by the Cultural Office of Leipzig and the Cultural Foundation of the Free State of Saxony.
