About the show:
This exhibition brings together two projects that question the absence of Roma representation in arts and culture spaces. Firstly, the project ‘Invisible Museum’—initiated by the Slovak artist Oto Hudec in 2017 at tranzit.sk— which challenges the idea of traditional ethnographic role of museums, where “othering” through the observation, documentation and mapping of the essentialized subject is strongly embedded. Hudec’s project rather proposes a new kind of institution that serves a more discursive, collaborative and emancipatory function. Secondly, and complementary to Hudec’s idea, is the proposal by ERIAC and OFF-Biennale in Budapest, #RomaMoMA, which imagines a transnational Museum of Roma Contemporary Art.
