Driton Selmani does drawings. In his works he includes aspects of his immediate surroundings in Kosovo as well as manifold references to the facets of life in general. For Thursday evening he has prepared a two-part presentation. In the first part he is going to show photos, partly shot by himself, partly from the internet. These photographs describe his immediate surrounding, his village, his land, up to global phenomena he is concerned with. He sees these photographs as an inspiration for his graphic work, which he is going to present in the second part of his lecture. Then the relations between the photos and the drawings will become clear to us, and we can feel the subtle irony emitted by his works.

Driton Selmani, born 1987 in Ferizaj, lives and works in Prishtina and Doganaj, Kosovo. In May 2011, he is a stipendiary of the Cultural City Network Graz.
