Through this invitation, we would like to make you part of the opening of the “MY EUROPE” Exhibition, which concludes a one-year project that encourages discussion on Europe through Art. The project “Art brings Europe closer to young people” aims to engage visual art artists in Albania and Kosovo, encourages the artistic creativity of young people with the Muse of Europe, contributes to the public discourse on the integration and European identity of Albanians.
The exhibition “MY EUROPE” is organized by the organization EU Policy Hub in Albania and the SINK Institute in Kosovo with the support of the National Youth Congress and the Municipality of Tirana within the framework of Tirana European Capital of Youth 2022. The exhibition is a platform of public presentation on Europe, on the colors of identity European and Western of Albanians, influencing a more realistic understanding of what is the world view of young artists from Albania and Kosovo about the continent and the European Institution. About 20 young artists from Albania and Kosovo have become part of the exhibition with their works in the mediums of painting, photography, graphic design, poster, digital painting and sculpture.
In about 30 years of transition and feverish desire for Europe, the artists are the first to break down the walls of separation, or the barriers of ignorance. Young artists within the Albanian or Balkan territory are in “perpetum mobile” – in constant movement to understand Europe and to be understood by it. With this approach comes this exhibition, which affects the understanding and presentation of the European identity through the artistic attitude of young people.
