The OHO Files: Preface
The Slovene OHO group, which formed in the late 1960’s, consisted of Milenko Matanovi?, David Nez, Marko Poga?nik, and Andraž Šalamun. It belonged to the wider Slovene OHO movement and regularly collaborated with this wider circle of intellectuals and artists. After very intense three years of working together, the members of OHO decided no longer to pursue success in the art world, trying instead to live closer to nature and to explore spirituality. Today OHO’s legacy represents one of the crucial references for Slovene contemporary art. A major Slovene prize for young artists has been named after the group.
In the following two interviews two formers members of OHO, David Nez and Milenko Matanovi?, comment on their association with OHO. Since the beginning of 1970’s they both have lived in the United States.
