Autostrada Biennale Education And Production Space

Former KFOR Hangar, Pruga Ukë Bytyçi

The Autostrada Biennale Education and Production Space is located in a former KFOR (Kosovo Force) military camp that was recently turned into Innovation & Training Park Prizren. It is a fifteen-minute walk north from the center of the city. Its reuse is part of a demilitarization process, with the former hangars having been turned into art workshops. The German Bundeswehr started to use the camp in 1999, and it had a total accommodation capacity of approximately 1,600. Since 1999, the Bundeswehr has invested in reconstruction of the area. Through education, onsite training, and workshops, Autostrada aims to develop new models of cultural development in an effort to encourage a young generation to participate in exhibition making and engage in critical and practical thinking through art. This project space aims to generate coexistence among communities by working and producing together. This contemporary approach and methodology of cultural production are the first steps toward the creation of the first center of contemporary art in Prizren.
