Kombinati Metalurgjik

Kombinati Metalurgjik (Metallurgical Combine) was the most ambitious project undertaken by the communist regime for the industrialization of Albania  Built after 1960, this huge metallurgical complex worked as a single unit until 1990, when the economic transition brought a series of difficulties, leading the structure to fall in a state of deterioration. In 2014, the complex came back to life by hosting an exhibition entitled "Informal Mind" which brought together contemporary artists operating locally and internationally, who in very different ways accentuated how art operates in an era of history.
