The NSK State was created in 1992 in the wake of Slovenian independence and the breakup of socialist Yugoslavia. Founded as a utopian social sculpture by the Slovenian arts collective Neue Slowenische Kunst (NSK), the NSK State has no national or physical boundaries and exists as a virtual state or a state in time. As a collective cultural work, the NSK State has opened temporary embassies in numerous locations and issued passports, some of which were used by NSK citizens to escape war-torn Sarajevo in the 1990s. The NSK State is also part of the wider “micronations” movement that has grown increasingly visible and received critical and theoretical attention in recent years.
