NSK – From Kapital to Capital, MG Ljubljana


The exhibition NSK from Kapital to Capital covers a period that marked the final decade of Yugoslavia, highlighting the fact that NSK was no less a critic of the coming global capitalism than of the failing outgoing socialism. In the latter respect it differed both notably and fundamentally from the liberal critique of socialism. Rather than employing the standard forms of artistic critique or irony, NSK based its approach on subversive affirmation and over-identification, articulating, among other things, the kind of society the groups envisioned after the collapse of socialism. Founding the NSK State in Time in 1992, they opted for a global community based not on territorial or economic principles but on aesthetics and thought.
