Read exhibition essay here for more information on each project

Performance in 3 acts

Act 1 – RR Marki Collective, composed of several artists of Rroma heritage and Mo Diener, dance in stereotypical fashion to Rroma music wearing stereotypical gypsy clothes.

Act 2 – The RR Marki Collective members recount personal stories of their life as Rromas in their countries of origin or abroad.

Act 3 – A member of the audience is invited to create a group portrait with the rest of the audience members along with the RR Marki Collective.  Then a photograph of this group portrait is printed and displayed on the wall to commemorate that day’s performance.   The photographer is asked to think about creating a portrait that somehow offers solutions to racism or is a representation of harmonious co-existence.
