Neue Slowenische Kunst: Krst pod Triglavom, 1986

The large, mobile stags that played a prominent part in the scenography of Krst pod Triglavom (Baptism under Triglav). This was the largest-ever Slovene theatrical spectacle and used avant-garde art to explore Slovene identity. The stag is a key NSK signifier.

The stags are also clearly visible in the 1987 video for Laibach’s Geburt einer Nation
