Unbelievable! Sislej Xhafa: Art market and Smile! is a cute conference on an utopic issue for the Kosovar context - THE MARKET OF CONTEMPORARY ART, something that still doesn't exist, and SMILE. The invited people in the panel discussion come from within the structure of contemporary art and people that are successful in their work.

The moderator of the debate is Sislej Xhafa.

'The market, the awareness among businessmen in Kosova, contemporary art as a material and intellectual investment; my responsibility (my fault) and the desire that art institutions in Kosova posses this well suited
critical collection of works of art, of the now living artists and the pride for the present generation and the generation that will come? These points are put as the initial starting points for the debate by the moderator.

The market is the economical space where the exchange of demand and offer takes place based on the price.
In order to exchange different things can be used, for example.
- material goods and social services
- the potential for production, like giving in exchange the labor force, land or technical and organizational services
- stakes in the enterprise values
- local and international currency
-copyrights, for different things

Again,
The market is the economical space where the exchange of demand and offer
takes place based on the price.
In order to exchange different things can be used, for example.
- material goods and social services
- the potential for production, like giving in exchange the labor force, land or technical and organizational services
- stakes in the enterprise values
- local and international currency
- copyrights, for different things
