For many years, I try to achieve an interplay of art,
economy and science in our work in progress. It is about
the different skills, different approaches, the practice of the contrast in the joint work
on interesting questions.
When we come to Prizren next October, we
will encounter a situation that is much more complex than that in Austria.
I myself have no experience, how to survive in a post war society as an artist, because I
live in a country all my life in peace.
What does it mean and what does it take to be an artist in times of a state-founding, in days
of nation bulding? How do artists and cultural workers from Kosovo want to
navigate the rest of Europe? What do you expect from it?
You will have noticed, those are my questions. But what are their questions? What
is there in art? What is in the knowledge work and cultural work?
Today, Europe is characterized by a richly varied diaspora. It is determined by
diversities, which have arisen from ethnic, political and economic forces playing.
We go south to find good questions. Maybe we will hear some answers.
