Laibach is marking 40 years of existence this year. There has already been series of anniversary events (two ongoing exhibitions and two concerts in Ljubljana), but the main event will be held on October 23rd in ‘Delavski Dom Trbovlje’ – where it actually all started 40 years ago. Unfortunately, due to the increasingly problematic viral situation and thus more stringent Covid-19 restrictions, a physical audience will not be allowed at the venue.

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.
