Albania/Knots - Imago Mundi
163 Contemporary Artists from Albania
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Elton Koritari, Albes Fusha, Alban Hajdinaj
With the power of colour, style and language but also through irony, 163 Albanian artists construct the creative portrait of the new Albania. A collection in equilibrium between realism, interpretation and metaphor, an imaginative mosaic, plural and polyphonic, that reveals a pictorial culture but also Albanian society, the history of a country. A collection in which, with pride and determination, the new Albanian artistic community cuts ties with the ideological and aesthetic oppression of the past and opens with confidence to the rest of the world.
Albania/Knots, 163 Contemporary Artists from Albania is an Imago Mundi collection, a cultural, democratic, global, non-profit project, promoted by Luciano Benetton with the aim of creating the widest possible mapping of the different contemporary artistic experiences of our world. In Imago Mundi, each country is represented by the works of established artists and new talents, commissioned with the maximum freedom of expression, whose only constraint is the 10x12 cm format.
