ALBANIA 1E1000

2008

The magazine "Albania 1e1000" issue 0 is created from a series of interviews and conversations with the locals. They are conducted by ilmotorediricerca with an association called "Mergimtari" in Turin. Albania is a small country, a lot of people from its neighboring countries don't know very well its history, geography and culture. The bilingual magazine shows the shapes of Albania. The solid-void space created by the graphic and texts symbolizes the identities of Albanian communities in Turin. The magazine production process intends to create possible space for mediation and intercultural dialogues. The part of Albania on the unfolded magazine is detachable, allowing the reader to take away Albania and imagine the absence from the negative form. This magazine, the issue 0, is created for both Albanians and Italian, and is the network between these two countries.
