Alketa Xhafa Mripa
Conceptual Artist // Activist
I cannot stay indifferent to injustice, therefore I act.
Alketa Xhafa is a conceptual artist and activist whose work addresses migration and the position and roles of women in society. As part of her 2015 installation titled “Thinking of You”, Xhafa collected thousands of skirts and dresses from Kosovar women and displayed them on clotheslines across the entirety of Prishtina’s football pitch as part of an art piece dedicated to the 20,000 survivors of war-time sexual violence in Kosovo, as well as survivors around the world.
