Rewind/Play/Forward came as a reflection on the current situation in Albania but, as the title itself suggests, it also signals the first attempts to deal with and relate to our recent historical past, with a clear focus on the present developments of Albanian politics and society, considered from a global/local dynamic. The exhibition signals a new shift in the sensitivity of the young generation of Albanian artists who seem to be moving away from the fascination with visible changes in the physical landscape of the city, towards a deeper need to understand the past/present dichotomy.
The event is organized by T.I.C.A – Tirana Institute of Contemporary Art and Zeta Gallery, supported by FAVA – The Foundation for Albanian Visual Arts and Austrian Embassy, Tirana.
