Dear Media representatives, AUTOSTRADA BIENNALE is coming to Prishtina.

It is our pleasure to invite representatives of the media to the press conference organized in the framework of the Autostrada Biennale. On this occasion, the Curator and the Co-Founders of the Autostrada Biennale will use the opportunity to jointly and enthusiastically present this years’ programe in front of. This year, the Autostrada Biennale will be held in Prizren from the 21st July until the 21st of September.

The Curator Giacinto Di Pietrantonio states the following:

“It is clear that nowadays, even more so than a few decades ago, the word revolution sounds suspect, given the collapse of the great narratives promising revolution ever since the Enlightenment, be they on the right or left. Those that produced the well-known dramas of the 20th century, and because of which everyone by the end of the century was in such a rush to bury the word revolution. Unfortunately, by doing so, they also buried the utopias and hopes for the future which the word represents.”

Henceforth, this edition will aim to emphasize individual Revolutions of each person.

We are enthusiastically looking forward to meeting you,

Very respectfully yours,
Autostrada Biennale Team
