This is the first six issues of KOSOVO 2.0 is an artist magazine published in Pristina and supported by various international funding bodies. It was originally funded by the 'National Endowment for Democracy'. Their founding statement reads "We wanted to create a place where the country's youth would create and express their personal take through stories they would share. We remain convinced that indivudual stories and voices should not be lost' and 'Today there is a new belief and assertion in agency; that history is somethng we can all possess; and that often marginalized narratives and memories can be recorded and remembered. And that is what we offer in our first issue, because there's nothing wrong with showing your weaknesses, and there's something special when you notice them on your own."
This strong counter-cultural magazine chooses a theme for each issue, often working in very controverisal areas:
Volume 1: IMAGE 2011 Summer 2011
Volume 2: CORRUPTION Winter 2011/2012
Volume 3: RELIGION Summer 2012/2013
