HISTORY

The story behind the artwork

A Kosovar Albanian refugee child looks out a small hole in her tent in Kukes, Albania, near the border with Kosovo, April 7, 1999. After the 1997 collapse of Albania’s economy, widespread looting and ethnic conflict broke out in Albania and Kosovo, a majority Albanian province in southern Serbia, which led to the mass exodus of thousands of ethnic Albanians in 1998 and early 1999; nearly all of these 850,000 refugees returned to Kosovo starting in mid-1999, many seeking revenge against the Serbs.
