Inside Out/Outside In Kosovo

Art Exhibition


Inside Out/Outside In Kosovo Art PieceUsing images, sound, and projections, Inside Out/Outside In, this exhibition on the PAC walls highlights a study abroad experience of Adelphi students as well as the history and experiences of the children, youth and adults in Suhareka, Kosovo.

2018 is the 10th anniversary of Kosovo’s independence and the theme Outside In/Inside Out celebrates personal and collective pasts, presents and futures through interviews with Kosovar community and family members about their memories from the past twenty years. The stories became the content that informed the final collaborative artwork which is reinterpreted and presented here on the PAC walls.

Kosovar youth ages 7-21 and Adelphi students collaborated for a week of artmaking – organizing the stories and creating symbols, experimenting with light sensitive paper and creating a “Camera Obscura” in one of the center’s classrooms. A culminating exhibition at the Fellbach Haus Centre for Creative Education, a community cultural center directed by Artist Refki Gollopeni, was curated by the Adelphi and Kosovar students. Community members including children, youth, families and municipal leaders attended the event.

This exhibition is part of a longer, ongoing project in connection with the arts nonprofit and co-sponsor ArtsAction Group, who are in their eighth year of partnering with the Fellbach Haus arts community.
