Venue: Boxing Club, Mark Isaku Str. 10000 Prishtina, Republic of Kosovo

Stacion - Center for Contemporary Art Prishtina is pleased to introduce the presentation of Angelika Stepken, part of the Public Program of Summer School as School 2017.

Angelika Stepken will present Villa Romana, a german artists’ residency in Florence which tries to operate in different contexts: the local and the global South.
Villa Romana is understood as a “weak” institution appreciating individual research and exchange on social and political perspectives.

Angelika Stepken has been director of Villa Romana since late 2006 giving a new profile to the today 112 years old institution. Before she was directing the Badischer Kunstverein in Karlsruhe (1998-2006) and working as a free lance writer and curator on international scale. Recently she curated the IfA international travel exhibition “Future Perfect” which this year tours through several museums in South America. In 2015 she published “On One Side of the Same Water – Artistic practice between Tirana and Tanger”. This year a monography about the Italian artist Ketty La Rocca is going to be published by Revolver Publishing.
