Toci said the fair serves as a good place with equal opportunities for all of them to present their products. Albanian writers and critics like Ismail Kadare, Drit쳯 Agolli, Rexhep Qosja, Fatos Arapi, Fatos Kongoli, Diana ȵli, Ali Podrimja, Luan Starova, Nazmi Rrahmani, Eqrem Basha, Ali Aliu, Kim Mehmeti, and others will have daily contacts with readers.

Following that center personnel exerted violent acts against Mjaft activists and also two organizers of the fair, Fatmir Toci and Petrit Ymeri, according to Mjaft.

                    [post_content] => TIRANA, Oct. 31 - Daughter of Vangjush Mio, Rozeta, found an old camera used by her father together with a collection of some of his works. An old photographer in Korca had it and recently told her. Rozeta said that the camera could have been placed at the museum dedicated to her father but the house has not been maintained well. There are a few visitors, mainly foreigners, who have gone there. Alongside painting pictures has been another passion for the Albanian famous painter Vangjush Mio. The museum has 57 of his paintings while 62 other works are sheltered at the Gallery of Arts. In 1994 21 of his paintings were stolen and are yet to be found.

                    [post_content] => TIRANA, Oct. 31 - Tirana Institute of Contemporary Art announced the first platform for contemporary art in Albania. During the last years Tirana has attracted the attention of the international contemporary art world through a number of events, among which the Tirana Biennale is the most important. A new platform is now born - Tirana Institute of Contemporary Art (www.tica-albania.org), which is the only institution for contemporary art in Albania and one with the ambition to offer substantial support to a developing art scene. It is for the first time that an Artist in Residency Program is established in the country, offering support to local and international artists who want to do research and develop their work in Tirana. After having analyzed the insufficiency of existing local institutions and the lack of new forms of dedicated cultural exchange within the Balkans, Europe and beyond, they thought time had come for a new approach towards cross-cultural relations and the potentials offered by artistic research. TICA Artist in Residency Program will conditionally host not less than three artists at a time: one from Albania; one from the Balkans and one from Europe or beyond. The program will be based on a flexible structure that can offer the possibility to move between different locations, contexts and thematic interests. It shall be structured as a project-based residency program, with an intention to encourage artists with different backgrounds and experiences to work together towards a final presentation (exhibition, publication, event). For detailed information on how and when to apply, please check the website: www.tica-albania.org. The Artist in Residency Program is made possible through the generous support of Institute of Tirana Biennale and Moving Culture.
