Eugen Raportoru: The Abduction from the Seraglio / Roma Women: Performative Strategies of Resistance


  • TUE - SUN
    23/04 > 27/11
    9.30 am - 5.30 pm

Organizing Institution: ERIAC European Roma Institute for Arts and Culture

Venue: Istituto Veneto di Scienze Lettere ed Arti, San Marco 2945, Campo Santo Stefano
 

Description

A multifaceted and kaleidoscopic time capsule, an installation series of sitespecific items that populate the Roma domestic space. The series is grounded in an understanding of the significance of the narratives that such objects embody, as well as their capacity to inform and reflect Roma culture, Roma lives, and the distribution of Roma knowledge. The story of the increasing presence of oriental carpets in Eastern European households is retraced, inviting meditation on the specific timespace configuration of notions of identity and history, but also trauma, hope, the body, and affect. A series of interventions further reflects on the double minority position of Roma women, creating a resonant chamber allowing us to listen to and learn from their voices.
