In 3 steps the exhibition shows selected works of 3 artists dealing with the reality of Romani people in different countries. During its temporal process the exhibition will grow more and more and occupy the 1st floor of the Gasteig as a central point of Munich’s cultural life.
The distorted gypsy image of the social majority is characterized by prejudices, stereotypes and clichés. Romani artists presents themselves increasingly self-confident in public and by doing so they make people obvious how unreal those attributions are. Through their art they reflect on „our“ view while revealing the contradictions in the idea of the „gypsies“ and the „others“.
Tamara Moyzes, born in Bratislava and living in Prague, depicts the paradoxes of politics and social reality in her photo installations and videos. The Berlin based photographer Nihad Nino Pušija, himself having been expelled from Sarajevo by war, shows pictures from Romanis that were deported from Germany to Kosovo. Alfred Ullrich grew up in Vienna and lives in the surroundings of Dachau today. Using his graphics and installations he reflects on Romani literature and their living reality in a humorous and poetic way
