Unmasked Politics: Lies as an Attitude

Date: November 6th 2023

Place: Prishtina and Prizren

Workshop concept by Sislej Xhafa


In a world where art and politics collide, mix and reveal the most intriguing ways. In our workshop, ‘Unmasked Politics: Lies as an Attitude’, we will explore the interweaving of these two fields that seem to be opposite. This workshop is an opportunity for participants and artists to define, confront and question the complex relationship between politics, the social dimension and art.

"Unmasked Politics: Lies as an Attitude" aims to provide a platform for participants to dig into political, social issues by highlighting truth, lies and deceptions in the real world. They will learn to use art as a tool for commentary and criticism, examining the sensitive narratives of society through various artistic instruments.

This workshop encourages participants and artists to think outside the box, pushing the boundaries of their creative expressions to detect temporal nuances. Collaboration and interdisciplinary interaction are essential for exploring complex topics. Participants will be encouraged to combine different artistic forms to create a multifaceted experience.

* Participants will explore different artistic techniques and their potential.

* Interdisciplinary groups will be formed to create artistic projects that observe political, social themes where they reveal hidden truths and play with the art of lying and the power of invisibility.

*During the workshop, we will encourage critical discussions on the relationship between art, politics and lying.

"Unmasked Politics: Lies as an Attitude" is an initiative that challenges the norms and expectations about the interaction of art and politics It illuminates the complexity of political narratives, aims to uncover the truths, and to learn art as imagination where the lie as a consequence takes shape through creativity.
