Event Title

Presentation of Preliminary Results of a Pilot Study on the Emigration of Visual Artists from Kosovo

Session

Integrated Design

Description

This pilot study aims to set the foundation for a future long-term research project studying the migration of visual artists from Kosovo to the countries of the European Union, United States, and other Western and industrialized countries throughout the World. This study is focused on the artists who mainly migrated from Kosovo during the so called 2015 exodus. Through questionnaires administered to specifically selected subjects, the study investigates issues such as reasons for leaving Kosovo, their artistic practice in Kosovo and abroad, as well as their employment. Since the research is still ongoing, here we present the preliminary data. In conclusion, an expansion of the existing study and further research is necessary in order to more accurately study the phenomenon of visual artists’ emigration from Kosovo. Recommendations on additional parameters, such as a larger sample size, additional artist-specific questions, as well as inclusion of and comparison with a group of artists who remained to live in Kosovo, are listed in the discussion section.
