Mitrovica Square

Mitrovica is a northern municipality in Kosovo that has a distinct and multicultural history. Some of the city’s oldest buildings, such as the mosque, clock tower, madrasa, and khan, showcase Ottoman architecture. After World War II the city experienced significant economic changes due to the mining of lead, silver, zinc, ore, and gold in Trepça, which transformed the city. An antifascist sculpture was installed in the city’s main square in the early 1970s. In 2010, due to the redesign of the square, it was removed and never returned, for unknown reasons. When the artist Alban Muja heard about the work’s removal, he organized a televised debate to fight for the work to be returned. His campaign was supported by others in Mitrovica, who called for the restoration of the work via a Facebook group.
