Idlir Koka, born in Tirana in 1979 and lives and works in Tirana, Albania.
His work investigates the relation between the spectacle and audience, framing it as a contemporary regime and a new ideology of conformity. It treats the cult of the show as the first mediator of how we perceive contemporary life phenomena, where spectacle and the audience often merge into one giving us fictional imagery. The audience is the show and vice versa. Spectators become the show itself, often hypnotic-oriented and subordinated towards a new self-relationship/reproduction.
