Anila Rubiku Praticipating at the 5th Thessaloniki Biennial “Between the Pessimism of the Intellect and the Optimism of the Spirit”

“Inspiration for the title (…) was an aphorism that was repeated in the Prison Notebooks of Antonio Gramsci; “The challenge of modernity is to live without illusions and without becoming disillusioned” written between 1929 and 1935, while Gramsci was imprisoned by the fascist regime in Italy. This dualism invoked in the phrase expresses the point for an exploration of the crisis in the Mediterranean region – which will be the main discussion for the Biennale.”
