Publisher - MIT Press
ISBN 0-262-63315-9
2005

Alexei Monroe offers the first critical appraisal of the entire NSK phenomenon, from its elaborate organizational structure and its internal logics to its controversial public actions. The result is a fascinating portrait not only of NSK but of the complex political and cultural context within which it operates. The book includes a foreword by Slavoj Zizek and also features a selection of colour prints from the NSK archives along with a large number of black and white illustrations.

Laibach

Neue Slowenische Kunst
Publisher: Amok Press and Graficki zavod Hrvatske
ISBN: 1-878923-05-6
1992

Neue Slowenische Kunst book is still the most comprehensive guide to the work by all the NSK groups, especially Laibach, in their collective form even although it only covers up to a point in 1990. It captures the art organisation at its artistic peak and helps to convey the impact they and their work had and possibly also its influence in the breakup of the Yugoslavian Federation. Luxuriously produced and richly illustrated throughout, it's very much a piece of art in its own right and an excellent presentation of the work.
