Abstract (English)

Iles comments on the work of IRWIN, a group of Yugoslavian artists which takes part in the "Neue Slowenische Kunst" movement. The mixture of characteristic Slovenian iconography with European art historical references is seen to create a political/aesthetic paradox. The "Red Districts" and "Was Ist Kunst" projects are presented, along with manifestos by the artists.
