Laibach are playing the Tate Modern in an already sold out show on April 14th at 10pm
Laibach as part of the NSK (Neue Slowenische Kunst - a radical Slovenian art collective (1984-92) ) which also consists of IRWIN, New Collectivism and Theatre of the Sisters of Scipion Nasice; are taking over London, starting on 20th March with a show in the Chelsea Space.
Laibach's critical reflection of totalitarian rule can be subversive to the point of terror or hilarity, whilst IRWIN present a theoretical and complex study of politics in a true avant-garde style.
The gig in Tate Modern accompanies the exhibition 'time for a new state' that will be showing April 4th - June 22nd at Calvert 22 - one of the most forward thinking spaces I know in the UK, dedicated to showing artwork from Russia and Eastern Europe.
If you feel like watching some Laibach videos it may be interesting to have a read through Slavoj Zizek's writing on overidentification in 'The Plague of Fantasies' - v. briefly summarised here.
