Palatti Kosova Berlin. NewYorkRioTokyo, Berlin, 2006.
Works from a residency project in Prishtina / Kosova
In September 2006 the Palatti Group organized the residency project Out of Foreign Focus in Prishtina. During one month six international artists created an exhibition at the Gallery Hani i 2 Robertėve. In the weeks leading up to the exhibition the artists explored the city, and made trips around the different parts of the country. Among places visited were the divided city Mitrovice, the Kishnice mines, and the army base Camp Bondsteel. The different artists were each impacted in very different ways and worked with photos, drawings and installation. Kelly O'Neill made a short film, in which he documented the group's working process and interviewed a number a local people.
The exhibition "Palatti Kosova Berlin", is presented in Berlin, several weeks after "Out of Foreign Focus". The exhibition shows new works made by Anna Bas Backer, Aurelio Kopainig and Betty Ras after their return from Kosova and offer a new view on the project. The exhibition also shows a small selection of works that were previously exhibited in Prishtina.
