Writings on the art scene of Kosovo over the past twenty years.

In the 1990s Kosovars felt—as many other countries in the Balkan region did—the urgency to shape their own scene: to search for national identity, to continue or end political conflicts, to find a language to express social and political developments, or simply to continue their practice in new, unstable times. This collection of writings and interviews offers insights from the perspectives of curators, artists, and philosophers on the latest artistic developments. They foster reflection on how a local, prospering scene continuously raises new questions and addresses undiscovered topics—while reckoning with the region's historical struggles Kosovo's staus as the youngest state within Europe.
