In 1987, seven years after the death of Tito, President of Yugoslavia, one of the greatest affairs in the history of that state broke out when a group of young punk-influenced Slovenian artists, known as Neue Slowenische Kunst, won the competition for the celebration of the Youth Day - the birth anniversary of the dead president. Part of their proposal was a poster announcing the celebration. The poster was chosen by the generals of the Yugoslav People's Army and top-ranking Yugoslav politicians. Soon afterwards it was discovered that the Youth Day poster was based on a poster used in Nazi propaganda. Indictment was brought against the group of artists but was soon dropped. It is a unique example of the artists challenging and defeating a powerful national army and Socialist regime. The Youth Day celebration was never held again and the Yugoslav state broke up soon afterwards.
