On the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the Memorial to the Sinti and Roma of Europe murdered under National Socialism, Galerie Kulturhaus is exhibiting artists with Roma and Sinti backgrounds.
The exhibition addresses the discrimination of these people in Berlin and parts of Europe. The focus is on everyday experiences that lead to exclusion and displacement due to ethnicity, for example in the housing market. Other important themes are flight, displacement, resilience, self-determination and the breaking down of stereotypes.
In her textile banners and collages, Luna De Rosa explores origins and historical contexts of Gadjé racism. Nihad Nino Pušija portrays young Roma children and teenagers to break stereotypes, and Alexander Ali Rönisch's photo series documents how a Romanian Roma community was displaced from Berlin Friedrichshain to make way for luxury apartments.
