Collaborative project

September 30 - November 10 2005

Most of the Albanian women and girls who become victims of human trafficking are sent to Italy and Greece, though some end up in England, Germany, Belgium, and Norway. In Albania, trafficking in humans was not illegal before 2001, and to date, only a handful of traffickers have been convicted, receiving sentences of just a few months in jail. Official estimates tell of more than 6,000 Albanian girls and women who are, or have been in the past, victims of illegal trade in humans and who were forced into prostitution. AAGW, a non-profit organization founded by former victims of human trafficking, seeks to provide support for trafficked girls and women. AAGW supports a number of projects to aid shelter residents, including vocational training and job placement, as well as the production of artistic handicrafts and fundraising activities.
Project CODE:RED Tirana was organized in collaboration with AAGW. All product included in installation at National Gallery of Arts were on sale during the Tirana Biennial and are produced by victim of trafficking.
