|NSK - Transnacionala info|
Information about the NSK's trip across the US, 'Transnacionala' can be found at http://www.heck.com/trans.html An extensive travel report can be found at: http://www.heck.com/rep.htm Somewhere in the middle of that report, the following assessment is given of the project: "Since, beyond filmmaker Michael Benson there was no American artist on the trip (all those invited excused themselves for one reason or another), and since the meeting with Mark Pauline had failed, it became more and more clear that the Journey had become an introspective research into the problems of East European artists and art which took place in the cultural and natural environment of the United States. The main subject of all the discussions as already started in Atlanta can be summarised in the conclusion that the difference between Eastern European and Western art is rooted not in the realm of individual ability but in the lack of art theory and an art system in the East."
