“In the night of the 26th of September 1980, a poster with a provocative symbol appeared on the walls of the Slovenian industrial town Trbovlje. It was a simple black cross, accompanied only by the word ‘Laibach.’” This is the beginning of Alexei Monroe’s monograph “The Plural Monolith: Laibach and NSK”, published simultaneously with the new Laibach album entitled “Wat” (Mute/ Dallas) in September 2003 in the Maska publishing house. The book brings a precise inventory of the history of the Laibach group, an installation of this artistic and social phenomenon into the Slovenian cultural and political space of the 80s and the 90s, and a theoretical reflection on the NSK and Laibach through the eyes of the British art historian and expert on the phenomena of popular and urban culture.
