Group founded in 1983.

Dušan Mandič, born in 1954, in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
Miran Mohar, born in 1958, in Novo Mesto, Slovenia.
Andrej Savski, born in 1961, in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
Roman Uranjek, born in 1961, in Trbovlje, Slovenia.
Borut Vogelnik, born in 1958, in Kranj, Slovenia.

IRWIN works in a complex and subtle way with connections between art and ideology. Their work brings together art historical references, such as Romanticism, Modernism or the Suprematism of Malevich, with symbols taken from religion or totalitarian political systems, for example from the Nazi era or from Soviet social realism. IRWIN has over time built a complex system of cross-references between their works and the works of other artists. The starting point for IRWIN is that different symbols have different meanings depending on place and time. In order to examine and discover the meaning and the function of a symbol IRWIN starts work according to a method or process they have developed themselves, the retro principle. This method means that in order to understand the meaning and function of a symbol one needs to investigate its origin. A reconstruction of the meaning of the symbol implies that the meaning of the symbol is changed retrospectively through the fact that IRWIN juxtaposes and appropriates the symbols into new contexts. Irwin is also a cofounder of NSK in 1984.
