For this ISCP Talk, ISCP alumnus Alban Muja will be in conversation with Kari Conte.

In their conversation, Muja and Conte will discuss the artist’s 2021 ISCP solo exhibition, 'Family Album', that restaged the Kosovo Pavilion of the 58th Venice Biennale. It featured a three-channel documentary video installation tracing the stories of several Kosovo children from the Kosovo War in 1998 and 1999 to their present-day realities. They will also consider Muja’s latest installation and paintings for Manifesta 14 in Prishtina. This clandestine project titled 'Above Everyone' looks at the post-war vernacular architecture that sprouted on the roofs of existing buildings in Kosovo.

Alban Muja is a Kosovan contemporary artist who lives and works between Berlin and Prishtina. Influenced primarily by the social, political and economic transformation processes in the wider surrounding region, he investigates history and socio-political themes and links them to his position in Kosovo today.

Muja’s selected exhibitions include: Manifesta 14, Prishtina; Ludwig Museum, Budapest; MAXXI Museum, Rome; Autostrada Biennale; Charim Gallery, Vienna; 3rd Industrial Art Biennial, Istria, Croatia; Crawford Art Gallery, Cork, MOMus Experimental Center for the Arts, Thessaloniki; Kumu Art Museum, Tallinn; Guangdong Museum of Art; Museum Of Contemporary Art – Skopje; MeetFactory, Prague; James Gallery, New York; City Art Gallery of Ljubljana; Zhejiang Art Museum, Hangzhou; Museum of Fine Art, Split; National Gallery of Kosovo; National Gallery of Arts, Tirana; as well as many others.

Kari Conte is a curator and writer focused on global contemporary art. She is Senior Advisor, ISCP.
