Bunk’Art video-museum exhibition
Tirana, Albania – November 17 – 30, 2014

The Bunk’Art video-museum exhibition takes place inside the structure of the anti-nuclear bunker of  Enver Hoxha in Tirana (Albania) from the 17th to the 30th of November 2014.

This structure was built between 1972 and 1978, a structure which consists of 106 rooms distributed into five levels, including also an assembly-auditorium hall. Until now this structure has remained in the exclusive disposal of the army and is used only a few times for military exercises.

The bunker is designed and set up to accommodate all the command line of the government in case of a potential chemical bombing or atomic attack to the Albanian capital: this is confirmed by the presence of a big number of rooms, some of which are designated as emergency apartment for Enver Hoxha, the Prime Minister Mehmet Shehu and at the same time for all the political and military nomenclature of the country.

The video-museum exhibition is extended only in a part of the structure, namely that part where level fifth leads to the auditorium, which is located at the third level, with a total of 40 rooms.

The Bunk’Art exhibitions contains video installations, sounds, lights, images, objects and digital equipment to recreate a historical journey of emotional content which represents the case of a reflection and recognition of national history even for the youngest.

The exhibition’s objective is to commemorate the main historical events in the period between 1939 and 1944 with passages of the before Italian invasion and after liberation. The exhibition highlights in a clearly museum context the features and technical specifications within the building that are built from the regime to withstand an attack from enemies.

Thanks to the uniqueness of the environmental context, the exhibition becomes an opportunity to express, inside of the structure which is the symbol of dictatorship and the Cold War, the possibility of creativity and modern art. For this reason are also invited to attend young Albanian artists, to whom are made available some bunker rooms and other areas during the corridors, to create their installations.

Artists involved: Ledia Kostandini, Alketa Ramaj, Enkelejd Zonja, Rudina Hoxhaj, Astrit Ismaili, Sidrit Tarifa, Jelena Dejanovska, Deniz Akca, Ajmona Hoxha – Blendina Cara – Elis Vathi – Klodiana Millona, Luca Curci, Candas Sisman, Izabella Gustowska.
