The Mayor of Tirana, Erion Veliaj, present in the exhibition ‘’ Retrospective, Albania in the 90’, curated by the Austrian photographer and anthropologist, Robert Pichler, declared that this exhibition is a childhood throwback.
‘’A throwback to our childhood, that was tough, a throwback to be considered as a mirror, to understand where we were and make a comparison of culture and emancipation while reflecting’’ – declared Mayor Veliaj.
The director of the National Historic Museum, Dr. Dorian Koci noted that Albania in the 90’ was an important period for the history of Albania.
‘’ I am thrilled and excited that you came here. The time when I was here wasn’t the best, but something is clear that I have taken a lot from Albanians and I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for Albania. During my stay I received knowledge and hospitality, which were very important for me as a scholar. The photos and the videos are propriety of Albanians and not mine’’- declared the Austrian anthropologist Robert Pichler.
This exhibition started its journey in Tirana 18 months ago, at the bus station of the northern line. The bus of the line Kombinat-Kinostudio will be covered by the photos of the exhibition and will serve as a moving studio, followed by other lines in different cities, bearing the testimony of 90’ Albania.
