The Muslim Mulliqi Prize 2009, aims to take on the discourse built through the previous six editions, from Nadja Zgonik’s "Identity Kit" (2003), where many international artists were invited to participate, through Gëzim Qëndro’s "Glocal" (2004), who further elaborated on this theme, up to Mehmet Behluli’s "Conquering New Spaces" (2005) and the most local art-oriented exhibitions curated by Mustafa Ferizi, Suzana Varvarica Kuka and D.N.K. Filoart.

Now at its 7th edition, the Muslim Mulliqi Prize is establishing itself as one of the most interesting awards for contemporary art in Europe. Every year a guest curator is invited to organize an exhibition at the National Gallery of Kosovo in Pristina. The prize is awarded by an independent jury selected annually, and is announced during the opening night in mid-December. For the 2009 edition, the curators Michele Robecchi and Gazmend Ejupi, in collaboration with the Director of the National Gallery, Fahredin Spahija, have imagined the exhibition as a journey, open to diversions and unscheduled stops.
The Muslim Mulliqi Prize is organized by the National Gallery of Prishtina and is supported by the Ministry of Culture of Kosovo.
A catalogue documenting the exhibition will be published in February 2010.
