This, though, could be seen as their achievement, and nothing to shy away from. Why is brutality the opposite of mystification? It suggests that only the absence of understanding and analysis can facilitate the enjoyment of complexity. However, this view confuses complexity with a pleasant sense of impenetrability, with the false evocation of the Sublime through feigned stupidity.

This, though, could be seen as their achievement, and nothing to shy away from. Why is brutality the opposite of mystification? It suggests that only the absence of understanding and analysis can facilitate the enjoyment of complexity. However, this view confuses complexity with a pleasant sense of impenetrability, with the false evocation of the Sublime through feigned stupidity. Enjoyment, or even just the perception of complexity, depends on an understanding of structures that cannot be grasped in a state of mystical awe.

Often, at the most interesting point, Monroe simply proclaims an issue complex, instead of describing whatever it is that is complex about it. This is mostly avoided, however, although it does shine through as a subtext. As well it might, for what Monroe undertakes is an attempt to describe an artistic project based on the reception and criticism of ideology that was unprecedented in its determination. An art that pursues a critique of ideology should not be confused with, or judged as, a critique of ideology minus the art.

From Short Circuits. The first English-language study of NSK—one of the contemporary art world's most radical forces—with particular focus on the performances and productions of NSK's musical and conceptual division, Laibach. NSK is considered by many to be the last true avant-garde of the twentieth century and the most consistently challenging artistic force in Eastern Europe today. The acronym refers to Neue Slowenische Kunst, a Slovene collective that emerged in the wake of Tito's death and was shaped by the breakup of Yugoslavia.

Interrogation Machine: Laibach and NSK

NSK is considered by many to be the last true avant-garde of the twentieth century and the most consistently challenging artistic force in Eastern Europe today. The acronym refers to Neue Slowenische Kunst, a Slovene collective that emerged in the wake of Tito's death and was shaped by the breakup of Yugoslavia. Its complex and disturbing work -- in fields including experimental music and theater, painting, philosophy, writing, performance, and design -- has an international following but a powerful and specific cultural context. Within the NSK organization are a number of divisions, the best-known of which is Laibach, an alternative music group known for its blending of popular culture with subversive politics, high art with underground provocation -- reflecting the political and cultural chaos of its time. In Interrogation Machine , Alexei Monroe offers the first critical appraisal of the entire NSK phenomenon, from its elaborate organizational structure and its internal logics to its controversial public actions.

NSK is considered by many to be the last true avant-garde of the twentieth century and the most consistently challenging artistic force in Eastern Europe today. The acronym refers to Neue Slowenische Kunst, a Slovene collective that emerged in the wake of Tito's death and was shaped by the breakup of Yugoslavia. In Interrogation Machine , Alexei Monroe offers the first critical appraisal of the entire NSK phenomenon, from its elaborate organizational structure and its internal logics to its controversial public actions. The result is a fascinating portrait not only of NSK but of the complex political and cultural context within which it operates. Monroe analyzes the paradoxes, perplexities, and traumas of NSK's work at its deepest levels. His investigation of the relationships between conceptual content, stylistic method, and ideological subtext demonstrates the relevance of NSK in general and Laibach in particular to current debates about culture, power, war, politics, globalization, the marketplace, and life itself. As Slavoj Zizek writes in his foreword, "Today, the lesson of Laibach is more pertinent than ever.
