Transcentrala (Neue Slowenische Kunst State in Time)

Marina Grzinic

1993, 20:05 minutes, colour, Slovenian; subtitled in English


A documentary/artistic project about the Neue Slowenische Kunst (NSK) movement (Laibach, IRWIN, Kabinet Noordung) in Ljubljana. Involves members of the core of the NSK and together with them, we travel into the structure of the "utopian" NSK state, a state in time. Teh video Transcentrala is like a virtual explosion of the "rotating swastika"; splinters of this explosion take us into the very innards of the NSK, saturated not only with "blood and mud", but also with most ludicrous utopias, visions, strategies, the apocalypse and self-consciousness at the end of the millenium. The video was premiered at the Venice Biennial 1993 as a part of the installation by the group IRWIN exhibited at the Slovenian Pavillion. The video was presented in the competition programme of the Oberhausen short film festival in 1994.
