The Myers Forum – IRWIN

Collaborative Art Practice: Re-Imagining the Past, Challenging the Present.

Fall, 2014 – Emily Davis Gallery

The Fall 2014 semester features the visit of the Slovenian multidisciplinary art collective IRWIN.  Two IRWIN members, Borut Vogelnik and Andrej Savski, will conduct a series of workshops, critiques, and collaborative projects.  Within the Myers Forum course collaborative work and critical engagement with the established art narratives of the past will be the key principles of engangment for the students collaborating with the visiting artists.

About the Myers Forum Artists

Borut Vogelnik and Andrej Savski are co-founders and members of the Slovenian multi-disciplinary collective IRWIN, established in 1983.  IRWIN, along with the music and performance group Laibach (est. 1980), the Theater of the Sisters of Scipion Nasice (est. 1983), and the design faction New Collectivism (est. 1982), comprise a broader art organization Neue Slowenische Kunst (or NSK).  Using a highly developed system of discursive instruments, aesthetic symbols, and performative techniques, NSK has employed visual arts, video, music, theater, writing, and public relations to investigate the relationship between art, social context and ideology.
