Albert Heta is an artist, curator, designer and social critic based in Prishtina, Kosovo. Heta’s works in contemporary art are often simple acts of intervention in an existing social condition, responses to a given situation, or rethinking of existing objects. His notable works ‘Revelution’, restoring street lights in the Square of Brotherhood and Unity and the Monument of Revolution in Prishtina(2012), ‘It’s time to go visiting: No visa required’, a public intervention on British Airways billboards in Prishtina (2003), ‘Embassy of the Republic of Kosova in Cetinje, SCG’ (2004) for Cetinje Biennale or his ‘Kosovar Pavilion Venice Biennial 2005’ (2005) distributed in collaboration with e-flux, are not merely the installations or acts of appropriation, but also acts of engagements with the conditions under which the works were accepted by the curators, media, politicians, and the public.
