Albert Heta is an artist and artistic director of Stacion - Center for Contemporary Art Prishtina in Kosovo. His work includes simple acts of intervention in an existing social condition, responses to a given situation, or rethinking of existing objects. 

His notable works ‘It's time to go visiting: No visa required’, a public intervention on British Airways billboards in Prishtina (2003), 'Embassy of the Republic of Kosova in Cetinje, SCG' (2004) for Cetinje Biennale or his 'Kosovar Pavilion Venice Biennial 2005' (2005) distributed in collaboration with e-flux, are not merely the installations or acts of appropriation, but also acts of engagements with the conditions under which the works were accepted by the curators, media, politicians, and the public.

Stacion - Center for Contemporary Art Prishtina is a project institution for contemporary art and architecture, established in 2006 by artist Albert Heta and architect Vala Osmani.
