Alban Muja’s work, which takes the form of video installation, short films and documentaries, drawing, painting, and performance, is largely influenced by the ongoing processes of social, political and economic transformation in his native Kosovo and across the wider region of the Balkans. Through his practice, he investigates history and sociopolitical themes, and links them to his position in Kosovo today. He lives and works in Pristina.
