Languages of publication
“The end of geography” was postulated two decades ago by Richard O’Brien. This article tries to refer it to the Slovenes, the nation which only for two decades has its own state and its own geography. The case study of the artist, the ideal transmigrant, as Marta Bucholc would say, gives us the possibility to understand the nature of the contemporary world in the best way. That is why the object of an analysis in this article is the collective Neue Slowenische Kunst, one of the most important cultural and social phenomena of the1980s in Slovenia. This article presents very briefly the history of the state of Slovenia and the development of culture of this country, especially in the late 1980s and in the 1990s when very important changes on the map occurred. As a consequence, NSK’s artists decided to detach their projects from space and situate them in time, but it was not a gesture of including themselves in the so-called “global trend.” On the contrary, it was a very serious proposition of the revision of their national and artistic, Slovenian and Eastern European, identity. Slavoj Žižek probably was right that this part of Europe requires a separate study, without automatically entering it into the framework of the ideology of globalization.
