From Xho Bonku.
Ive always found the idealism of communism expressed thru art to be inspiring, somehow much more inspiring than propaganda produced by liberal democracies. Perhaps its communism’s clear vision of how an ideal society should be that resonates with me. Obviously, communism and socialism as practiced by eastern Europe was a long term failure, but that doesn’t mean we cant appreciate what little good it left behind.
here is part 1 of the photos Ive been taking since Ive been here to try to document what remains of Albania’s communist public art in 2012.
