REDO is a three-day event in Prishtina that brings together a network of international designers in an effort to stimulate the current state of graphic design in Kosovo by addressing various local and international issues through the practice of graphic design.

The conference comprises of a series of talks that will focus on: engaging practices, international tendencies, unconventional ideas and processes, panel discussions, theoretical analysis, and workshops with an emphasis in local and international occurrences.

In its third edition, the conference will engage in a series of walks exploring the city through the streets as well as the locations where the lectures take place. Moving from one building to another, we will be marching together, bringing the conference closer to the city as a playful territory. REDO will establish a direct interaction with the city and the context for the lectures that take place within it.

ANGRY YOUTH

Kosovo’s Angry Youth is a collective of artists limited in neither their vision nor disciplines. Spanning across a vast expanse of mediums within the audio/visual fields of animation, design, illustration, music, street art, fine arts and writing, Angry Youth aims to fill an aesthetic and cultural void they find themselves situated in. The twelve members bring diversity in their voices and experiences while still maintaining a point of convergence at which a coherent and common vision is shared: the creation of that which there is both a lack for and hunger of.

Angry Youth is Zgjim Elshani, Lum Ceku (Greywan), Brilant Pireva (AKU), Yll Xhaferi, Gëzim Ramizi (XAX), Ari Maliqi (Mute), Alban Telaku (Noyd), Taulant Bytyqi, Hana J. Zeqa, Tomor Pllana, Astrida Breca, Eka.
