Burren College of Art in Ireland is pleased to announce The 2nd NSK State Folk Art Biennale: Folk Art Rising 1916 – 2016 as this year’s Burren Annual exhibition. The 2nd NSK State Folk Art Biennale will bring together over 30 international artists and collectives including special guests and NSK founding members, IRWIN.
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.
opening of the NSK: Kapital to Capital exhibition at the Moderna Galerija in Ljubljana, members of one of the constituent collectives, Irwin, handed out envelopes marked “N$K”, with a dollar sign. 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.
NSKSTATE.COM and Irwin are gathering material for the first exhibition of work produced by NSK citizens and followers. Selected works will show online and photographic and video material will be presented at the First NSK Citizens Congress in October 2010.
