LAIBACH 4.0 ANNIVERSARY IS POSTPONED

We regret to announce that due to the COVID-19 situation we have had to cancel and postpone the Laibach 4.0 Anniversary event that should be happening on 23 October 2020, in Delavski Dom Trbovlje. A coronavirus epidemic has been declared in Slovenia on 19 October 2020, which means that all public venues and cultural institutions, including Delavski Dom Trbovlje, are closed until further notice. We are looking into alternative options, but if nothing comes up, the Anniversary event will be postponed until 2021. All tickets purchased for the Live Stream will be refunded in the next 72 hours.

 

LAIBACH 4.0 ANNIVERSARY

Laibach is celebrating 40 years of existence. The site of the main 4.0 Anniversary event is ‘Delavski Dom Trbovlje’ – where it actually all started 40 years ago.

Delavski Dom Trbovlje is a spectacular modernist cultural center with several great venues. It was created and built between 1952 – 1956 by the architect Marko Župančič, a student of Jože Plečnik, Le Corbusier, and Pierre Jeanneret, in collaboration with architect Oton Gaspari and artist Marij Pregelj, the creator of the great mosaic on the walls of Delavski Dom.

PHYSICAL AUDIENCE NOT ALLOWED AT THE SHOW

Back in 1980, Laibach was forbidden from holding a very similar ‘coming out’ event in this place of industrial culture; therefore, we are going to do it now instead – 40 years later. Unfortunately, due to the increasingly problematic viral situation and thus more stringent Covid-19 restrictions, a physical audience will not be allowed at the venue, and we cannot do anything about that. Not even the 100 people that we were all hoping for. For all of you who have already bought tickets – your money will therefore be refunded at once. You can instead join everyone else for the live streaming of the event.
