Dystopias of Albanianness. Science-Fiction from Kosovo in the 2020s
Artrit Bytyçi, storylab, Prishtina, in discussion with Dr. Belfjore Qose and Prof. Dr. Christian Voss
2047. Albania has turned into a dictatorship and sends a killing robot to Prishtinopolis to eliminate liberal journalists and hackers. Like in “The Arbiter. A serialized ethno-cyber-punk novel” (2021), Artrit Bytyçi in his new comic book “Arnautistan Noir” conceives Albanian identities through alternative realities: How would today’s Prizren look like if it still were under Ottoman rule, and what language would people speak?
