Keld Karuni – Video Art – Exploring the concept of Freedom in Albania


A society based on social and economic
contrasts becomes a burden for the individual so much that
certain layers of population have nostalgia for the past and the lack of freedom. Many good things of those times have
been ruined, for example the family. I feel freedom in a way that
makes me understand how small my freedom is
and I feel frightened. How is your relationship with yourself,
that way is your relationship with freedom. Undoubtedly it’s a burden. It’s the
essential definition of consciousness. Life is given only once,
why not live it to the full? Freedom is like a bomb,
atomic bomb. It was a truncated one.
– Yes, truncated, but that’s the way it was life then,
who obeyed had a good life. This great culture that our people
has created in the past 50 years, they want to erase it from history. Above all freedom is a burden,
because you are a woman and to be born a woman in Albania
means that that you are the slave
of a male family tree and you end up the slave
of the spouse you choose. This is my country and
I am going to stay here. I don’t make compromises
on this aspect. Freedom is very good.
It’s a very big responsibility, through which we choose if we
really want to be free or not.
