Theatre director, performer and multimedia artist Mare Bulc, a co-founder of Dejmo Stisnt Theatre and the PEACE organisation, founded the No History Institute of Contemporary Arts as a vehicle for the No History/Know History Project, his first research project which featured annual performances and lecture-performances.

In 2009 the institute produced, together with Glej Theatre and Dejmo stisnt teater, the comedy Southern Scum go home! / Čefurji raus! directed by Mare Bulc and based on a novel by Goran Vojnović - the play went on to become one of the most successful theatre plays in Slovenian history with over 300 re-runs.

Mare Bulc has been a member of international SilentCell Network platform, and the No History programme included an annual SilentCell network presentation. Other activities included the projects Cream of Contemporary Slovenian Art (2004–2006), Pret-a-portret by Jure Novak and Mare Bulc (2006), The Last Egotistic Performance and Study for the Last Egotistic Performance by Mare Bulc (2006) and Adopt an Artist by Katarina Petrov and Jana Flego (2007), and the performances Crimes of the Heart, Made in Skopje, Sur*Vive*R and The Illusion of the Memory by Tina Smrekar (2007).

Warmarkt inc. was a multimedia installation, website and performance by Katja Kobolt and Tina Smrekar, made in 2006.
