After the award-winning exhibition by Vivian Suter, the Brücke-Museum is inviting a contemporary artist to enter into a dialogue with the museum's historical collection for the second time. Małgorzata Mirga-Tas, born in 1978, works in sculpture, painting and film.

Collage is a fundamental design principle of her artistic works.

MirgaTas is Bergitka-Romni and grew up in a Roma settlement in Czarna Góra, where she still lives and works today.

She studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow and works as an educator and activist in addition to her artistic work. Her works depict everyday scenes from contemporary Roma communities, often integrating personal textiles and objects of the sitters. They show autonomous individuals beyond stereotypical representations.

Based on the Brücke Museum's collection, these culturally and historically still predominant racist forms of representation of Roma are contrasted and thematised.

This is her first solo exhibition in Germany. Mirga-Tas represented Poland at the Venice Biennale last year and was represented at the last Documenta Fifteen. She is currently a fellow of the DAAD's Berlin Artists-in-Residence Programme.
