Publisheshed by TIMELESS Ed. - 2018 - FRANCE 20 x 27 cm - 196 pages in full color conceived byVALNOIR & MORTEN The definitive visual and textual monument to what philosopherSlavoj Žižekcalls "the most fascinating cultural and ideological political event till now of the 21st century".
In August 2015,Laibachmade global headlines with their concert on the occasion of the equally infamousNorth Koreacelebrating its 70th anniversary of liberation from Japanese colonial rule.
Choice of repertoire? Rodgers and Hammerstein’sSound of Music, of course. LIBERATION DAYS – Laibach and North Koreachronicles and explains a concert that shook the world and how it came to be. Lavishly designed byValnoir, a key player in this totalkunst performance, and edited by himself with the director and organiser of the performanceMorten Traavik, LIBERATION DAYS is the ultimate collection of behind-the-scenes photographs, artwork, propaganda, analysis and other forms of documentation from this world-historic event, including contributions from, among others, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea Committee for Cultural Relations,Slavoj Žižek, John Oliver, Lisa Sang Mi Min, Irena Šentevska and Charles Lewis.
As pleasing to the eye as puzzling to the mind.
Like the badge on the cover, this book will leave a mark...
Full of wonderful pictures that look like truth revealing lies: the making of a stage, in a country where EVERYTHING is a stage. Or maybe it's just a concert in a weird place ?!? Funny, absurd, and a great reading too... when you think that it can't get much Laibacher than this, it still surprises (its stills, also). Just one warning: if you like Laibach, you'll end up loving them... be prepared for the consequences :D
A fantastic book about the Pyongyang trip and performance with Morten Traavik and Laibach.
