Art in small circles
by, Evi VELIU
As a researcher in the fields of Political Science and Intercultural Communication, my purpose here is linked with the current state of the art in Albania, but only through the narratives, fables, and symbolic structures that condition it. Even though art as it is now mainly composed of rigid shapes and colors thrown/scattered without much thought in it, I argue that for art to think (or work) outside this quasi-mainstream mindset, it has first to see how the latter dictates its horizons of possibility. I conclude that these are ready-made fables and concepts taken for granted in the mainstream and which very quickly create a “discursive tension” where our very space of not only artistic freedom is at stake, and for which a “discursive struggle” may be delineated.
