The German Consulate General Co-Presents:
The Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany in cooperation with the European Roma Institute for Arts and Culture (ERIAC) are delighted to announce the exhibition:
SUKAR - Exhibition to Envision a Prosperous Future for the Largest European Minority
The exhibition ‘SUKAR’ (‘beautiful’) offers a look beyond Roma stereotypes and contemplates a future of mutual respect and peaceful co-habitation.
The exhibiting Roma artists: Daniel Baker, Robert Gabris, Delaine Le Bas, Emilia Rigova and Alina Serban enter a ‘conversation’ with their artwork presented in the lobby of the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany in New York. They reflect upon the role of Roma themselves, the resiliency of their rich cultural heritage and its immense contribution to national cultures.
The Berlin-based European Roma Institute for Arts and Culture (ERIAC) was launched on June 8, 2017 as a joint initiative of the Council of Europe, the Open Society Foundations, and the Roma Leaders’ initiative – the Alliance for the European Roma Institute. ERIAC’s mandate as a creative hub and the first transnational, international-level organization for the recognition of Roma arts and culture constitutes a groundbreaking development. For the very first time the Roma – the biggest European ethnic minority and a global diaspora – have an institution of their own from which they can promote their own narratives and representations of Roma identity and culture.
