A documentary about the Eastern European art collective NSK (that’s New Slovenian Arts to you), which comprises art rockers Laibach, theater troupe Red Pilot and painting group Irwin. Former New York Times reporter [sic] Michael Benson sets NSK’s art against the convoluted and turbulent history of the former Yugoslavia, and grapples with complex questions of aesthetics and politics in a surprisingly entertaining way. At the core is the question of whether NSK’s appropriation of fascist iconography is ironic anti-agitprop, or itself a form of dangerous propaganda.
