The exhibition focused on Albanian socialist realism through painting, poster and drawings, and it offered a selection of artworks produced under the dictatorship that aimed to spread socialism’s main principles among the proletarian.
Curated by Artan Shabani, the exhibition investigated the impact of the communist ideology on Albanian visual arts during the second half of the 20th century. The selected artworks reflected the ideology that played an important role in the works’ dogmatic content. The exhibition offered an opportunity to become familiar with the culture and identity of Albanian people who had been isolated from the rest of the world for a long time, and centered around the daily life, working class, portraits of leadership, representations of the regime and a hopeful approach to upcoming generations.

Our institutions have been stuck on linear Neo-Platonic tracks for 24 centuries. These antiquated processes of deduction have lost their authority. Just like art it has fallen off its pedestal. Legal, educational and constitutional systems rigidly subscribe to these; they are 100% text based.
