TateShots: Laibach – Monumental Retro-Avant-Garde

Slovenian music and cross-media group Laibach — describing themselves as ‘engineers of human souls’ — present a multi-media show recreating moments key from their history in the early 1980s to today.

This film shows highlights of Laibach’s sell out concert at Tate Modern, on 14 April 2012, and presents a rare interview with founding band member Ivan Novak. Laibach have divided, outraged and confounded for more than 30 years. The Slovenian avant-garde collective use totalitarian imagery and play with and subvert the confused identities, ambiguities, and potential nightmares and utopias of national identity.
