Joanna Szczepanik’s book is the first Polish attempt at an in-depth description of the artist collective Neue Slowenische Kuns as a cultural and social phenomenon. The collective (established in 1984 in response to banning the band Laibach by Yugoslavian authorities) has been meticulously analysed with reference to its two characteristic features: the unusual multifariousness of its actions and collectivism understood as its modus operandi.
The practice of the Slovenian artists can be perceived as a peculiar comment on the transformation of cultural phenomena in recent decades. Artistic geography seems to be an ideal way of grasping the topic from the perspective of cultural studies. An in-depth analysis of selected artistic issues from different angles makes this book an attractive materials for cultural anthropologists, art historians and sociologists alike.
