Revealing The Interplay Of Art And State

Incendiary and provocative, Predictions of Fire is a documentary about the crossroads of art and politics in Slovenia, the state in the former Yugoslavia itself at the crossroads of Western and Eastern Europe. The ostensible subject of this film by American journalist Michael Benson is NSK (Neue Slowenische Kunst, or New Slovenian Art), an aesthetic movement that is both a state of mind and a self-declared “stateless territory. ” NSK, which we in the West might describe as a collective of conceptual artists, issues its own passports and has its own embassy in Moscow.
