The Slovenian artist collective IRWIN is celebrating its 40th anniversary with an exhibition titled “Was ist Kunst, IRWIN?”. The exhibition delves into the black humour that is always present in IRWIN’s work, as well as how they use the questions of the State to comment on contemporary issues, such as migration. The exhibition will open on Friday, September 8th, 2023.
The Slovene Ethnographic Museum in Ljubljana, Slovenia, held an event titled “Art Is Not A Luxury, But A Necessity” on the longest day of the year, June 21st. During the event, Alexander Nym presented the book he edited titled “Reden An Die Europäische Nation: Weapons of Mass Instruction.”
Join us for a presentation of the book Reden and Die Europäische Nation: Weapons of Mass Instruction, edited by Alexander Nym. The event accompanies the exhibition "Folk Art between Home and the World: the SEM’s and Irwin’s NSK Folk Art Collection".
The book Weapons of Mass Instruction offers a unique perspective on the NSK State following the Berlin Citizens’ Congress until its final actions before the pandemic. This bilingual book is available in English and German and gives readers a distinctive perspective on possibly the most enduring and influential art project ever created. Individually stamped and numbered copies are available.
The exhibited works of art are in progress. They are finished but not completed. They remain open to new ideas, concepts and contributions. They are already transient by themselves, says their author Mr Matjaž Stopar. As long as they are in his possession, he reserves the right to change, adapt, discard and destroy them per a new concept.

This publication captures the essence of two seminal events that brought the NSK State in Time to Burren’s beautiful and remote karst landscape in Ireland. The 2nd NSK State Folk Art Biennale: NSK Folk Art Rising 1916-2016 and the exhibition Crisis Currency at Burren College of Art in May 2018 served as a robust dialogue between the NSK State and this European peripheral zone. This documentation is a testament to the profound impact that art can have on bringing together diverse communities and fostering meaningful connections that transcend geographic boundaries.
The Slovenian Ethnographic Museum (SEM) opens the exhibition entitled Folk Art between Home and the World: The SEM Collection and the NSK Folk Art Collection of the IRWIN Group on Thursday, 21 October 2021 at 7 pm.
