Highlights of the Tate Modern symposium Neue Slowenische Kunst (1984-1992): A Historical Perspective. Filmed by Simon Bell.
“As if to momentarily humanise the war scenes on film between each track, the band interspersed a collection of sampled rhymes and popular contemporary songs from the era. As for the film, the reversal trick of having reconstruction followed by destruction is simple, and yet so poignant and thought provoking. Having just reread Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse 5, I suggest you try his description of Billy Pilgrim’s hallucinogenic viewing of a war film backwards to get the literary version of what Laibach achieve in the first half of tonight’s performance.”
