Endi Tupja


Endi Tupja (1984, Albania) studied Languages and Cultural Studies at the University of Milan, and Experimental Media Studies at the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam, Germany. The focus of her research is centered in experimenting with strategies of memory recuperation and the potential of re-enactment with time witnesses. Her approach explores the limits of (self) representation as well as its tangential relation to filmmaking. Immediacy and friction modes with the apparatus are often employed in her creations to challenge the relation between corporality and the digital. She is currently conducting parallel research for two upcoming projects on communist, feminist, bathroom ecologies and on permanence and public space memories.

Ηer work has been shown in festivals, exhibitions and screenings for Tbilisi Architecture Biennial, Tbilisi (Georgia) 2020; “Sensations of Home” Fringe Arts Festival, Bath (UK) 2020; Other Ways of Watching Together” Showroom MAMA, Rotterdam (Netherlands) 2020; FURORA Film Festival Berlin (Germany) 2019; DokuFest International Short-and Documentary Film Festival, Prizëren (Kosovo) 2019; Oaxaca Film Festival, Oaxaca (Mexico) 2019.
