This one day symposium will elaborate on the themes addressed by the exhibition NSK Folk Art Rising 1916-2016 and their broader social and cultural impact in relation to the period of commemoration in Ireland and the precarious state of the European Union. Artists and invited guest speakers will discuss the role of the contemporary nation state, the aesthetics of memorialisation in relation to place (both real and imagined) and the relationship between artists/artist’s collectives to the current climate of globalization.

Simultaneously, thousands of miles away in New York, Laibach, one of the other original NSK groups, held a concert where these envelopes were also distributed. Both sets of envelopes contained a new state artifact: NSK State currency.
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.
This book is the generously illustrated, lavishly documented, critically narrated story of one of the most significant art collectives of the late twentieth century.
