Contributions from artists from different European countries are presented in this exhibition which deals with making visible power relationships in the context of the Romani people and taking side with the suppressed and the marginalized. In this regard solidarity in joint action is as vital as pointing out that the Romani people raise their voice for themselves.
Artists with and without Roma roots are engaged in a transcultural exchange. What unites them too will also be the will to deconstruct stereotyped images of Roma life and to look for new and appropriate self-empowered forms of representation. Linked to this are claims which apply at large for marginalized groups, for ethnic minorities and migrants alike – including the principal claim: equal rights for all!
