The installation presented by Alban Muja in the Petite Galerie resonates with the video Family Album, created for the Kosovo Pavilion at the Biennale di Venezia 2019.
This work focuses on personal and collective memories of the Kosovo War (1998-1999) and questions the role that images and the media have in constructing and shaping narrative, identity and history, especially in times of conflict.
