The Palac Sztuki museum of modern art in Lodz has finally released the catalogue of the Laibach exhibition held in the museum from May 26th until the end of August 2009. The full colour 200 pages catalogue "Ausstellung Labach Kunst Rekapitulacja / Recapitulation 2009" includes selected Laibach visual works from the end of 1970 until today, and separately presents works and installations from the Lodz exhibition. The catalogue also includes the most important manifestos and other Laibach texts, as well as rare photos and documents from the exhibition opening. It presents nine essays, authored by Wiktor Skok, Taras Kermauner, Lev Kreft, Slavoj Zizek, Ales Erjavec, Alexei Monroe, and Eda Cufer. All texts are published in both Polish and English.
For its 30th Anniversary, Laibach is announcing three large-scale introspective exhibitions in 2010, in Ljubljana, Zagreb, and Trbovlje. Each of these exhibitions will present different aspect of Laibach’s visual and multimedia art. The Trbovlje exhibition will open in the Delavski Dom on September 23th, 30 years after the very first (forbidden) Laibach appearance at the same place in Laibach's home town. The Zagreb exhibition at the HDLU is scheduled for November, and the Ljubljana exhibition at the MGLC (International Centre of Graphic Arts), Tivoli Castle in Park Tivoli, will open on April 15th 2010.

Parallel exhibitions of Laibach graphic art and selected merchandise items will be held at the same time at the Ljubljana gallery Galerija Luwigana and at Galerija 14 in Bled.
And there's more, with their video work "XY Unsolved" (1983, video interview, 12’56’’) Laibach is participating at the exhibition "Promises of the Past", between May 26th and June 16th at Centre Pompidou, Paris, France.
