El Concurso Artístico Internacional Amico Rom premia al pintor gitano Manolo Gómez Romero en la categoría de Pintura y Escultura

La trigésima edición del Concurso Artístico Internacional Amico Rom 2023 ha premiado al pintor gitano Manolo Gómez Romero en la Categoría de Pintura y Escultura. Estos prestigiosos galardones los conceden la asociación italiana Thèm Romanó, la Unione delle Comunità Romanès in Italia (UCRI), el Instituto Romanó Europeo para el Arte y la Cultura (ERIAC), la Asociación Española Presencia Gitana y la Asociación Científica y de Investigación para el Arte, Programas y Tecnología Culturales y Educativos de Eslovenia (EPEKA). La ceremonia de entrega de los premios tendrá lugar el próximo 5 de octubre en el Teatro Fenaroli de la ciudad italiana de Lanciano.

Este premio, considerado el más importante y longevo del mundo en el sector del arte gitano, reconoce el papel de Manolo Gómez Romero, ya no sólo como referente artístico, sino como referente gitano. Gómez Romero nació en 1967 en el humilde pueblo de El Coronil, en la provincia de Sevilla. Desde bien pequeño, sintió una gran atracción por el arte, sobre todo, por el arte abstracto. Su primer encuentro con la pintura tuvo lugar en su propia casa, cuando su madre encalaba las paredes. El joven Manolo se quedó fascinado con las gotas que la cal dejaba caer, que se le antojaban misteriosos dibujos.
Su amor por el arte fue en aumento a medida que pasaron los años, aprendiendo de manera autodidacta, y en 1989, cuando conoció a su mujer, Joana, decidió dedicarse a la pintura. Joana pertenece a una familia muy vinculada al sector artístico, es nieta de Llorens Artigas, uno de los ceramistas más importantes del siglo XX. Fue la suegra de Gómez Romero, Mariette, quien le hizo conocer de primera mano el mundo del arte. No fue un camino fácil, pues Mariette insistía en que siguiera practicando, ya que aún le quedaba mucho por aprender. También, lo llevó a visitar exposiciones de grandes artistas consagrados.
En 1990, Manolo Gómez Romero hizo su primera exposición en la Fundació Llorens Artigas, en Gallifa. En un inicio sintió miedo, dada la importancia de los artistas que habían pasado por allí, pero Joan Gardy Artigas, hijo de Llorens Artigas y también ceramista, le dijo que “la suerte estaba echada” y que confiaba en él. La exposición resultó todo un éxito. En el año 2003, participó en una exposición colectiva en la Galería Ignacio Lassaletta, en Barcelona.
En 2012, Manolo fue galardonado con el Premio del Instituto de Cultura Gitana del Gobierno de España. Este premio le abrió las puertas a nivel internacional, pudiendo trabajar con Moritz Pankok en la Galeria berlinesa Kai Dikhas, donde se exhiben los pintores gitanos más prestigiosos. Sus obras han sido expuestas en las importantes ciudades como Madrid, Valencia, Granada, París, Londres y Praga.

28/09/2023

Brun Morais (Brazil, born 1989) confronts the dominant representation of Roma identity through inverted sentences and quotations from decolonial theory in both his anthropological research and his interactive art installations made of mirrors. His exhibited multi-part installation "Reflections", which is one of the latest acquisitions of Kai Dikhas' collection, combines contemporary art and academic concepts in a series of installations that invite us to think about subalternity, marginalisation, intersectionality and standpoint theory. "Refelections" is based on the reading of "Can the Subaltern speak?" by the Indian author, scholar, literary theorist and feminist critic Gayatri Spivak (1985), who is a very important mastermind in the context of postcolonial studies. Against the universalism of hegemonic Western culture, Morais develops an expressive power based on a pluriversalism of Roma identity.

With the exhibition Andar para extistir ("Running to Exist") by Lorenzo Armendáriz and Brun Morais, the Kai Dikhas Foundation pursues two main goals: to make the German public aware of some of the realities of Roma in Latin America and, at the same time, to stimulate a debate about photography, identity and processes of subjectivation in the context of Roma art and culture. Photographic images not only depict reality, but also create new realities themselves, and these realities are not simply (visual) objects or decorations in our lives; they impose a way of seeing and being on us. What we see and what we don't see, that is, the regime of visibility in which we move and observe. It is not something spontaneous or free, but is permeated by dominant or hegemonic distinctions that organise the possibilities of seeing. The images in fact impose a repertoire of frames and values, of divisions and edges that make certain identities visible or make others invisible.

27/09/2023

Lorenzo Armendáriz (Mexico, born 1961) remembers his grandfather's large hands and rings. This was a tall, dark man who lived in a truck and was called “El Húngaro” (the Hungarian). He visited him as a child, but it was only as an adult that he learned that he was not from Hungary but was part of the Mexican Roma communities. His photographic project, an inner search for his personal traces and the portrait of Roma culture, little known in Latin America despite its centuries-old presence, emerged from this unrest. Since 1995, Armendáriz has been building a photographic archive about the lives of some Roma families in Mexico. There he captured the life and memories of the LUDAR with his camera. This group from the former Romania arrived at the end of the 19th century and to Mexico at the beginning of the 20th century and integrated into Mexican society by performing on the streets, trading and running traveling cinema. They were nomadic families who traveled through much of the Mexican territory in the 50s, 60s and 70s. This memory of hiking is what Lorenzo photographed, where the journey does not represent an escape but a way of life to exist and affirm oneself. His black and white images delve into the lives and histories of Roma families, playing with shadows, reflections and atmospheres to turn the photos into vibrant, contextualized documents that aim to break down stereotypes by performing on the streets, trading and running traveling cinemas.

In the frame of ERIACNET4EU project, ERIAC is offering a training course on Romani culture and history entitled “ROMA(NI) PAST – EUROPE’S FUTURE. WHY EMBRACING EU’S LARGEST ETHNIC MINORITY MATTERS”. Training will be held in a hybrid format, physically at the West University in Timisoara, and online on September 13 2023, 10.00-17.00 EEST / 09.00-16.00 CET.

The training, organized in connection to the Timisoara European Capital of Culture 2023, is specifically tailored for members of staff of public administration and of the European Union Institutions.

This year, the training will specifically target Romanian public authorities by hosting a specific session dedicated to the history and culture of Roma in Romania. Speakers of other sessions will be invited to incorporate specific examples that illustrate the Romanian context. To enable participation, the training will provide simultaneous Romanian-English translation.

The course will be delivered by a group of experienced Romani scholars, with relevant expertise in the field, including knowledge of the most recent discussions in Romani Studies as well as the most recent Roma-related EU and Romanian developments. The training is divided into the following thematic segments:

- “Introduction to Romani history and identity” by Dr. Adrian Marsch
- “Roma culture – Europe’s heritage” by Dr. Rosemary Cisneros
- “Antigypsyism in theory and practice – unpacking different dimensions of racism against Roma communities” by Dr. Iulius Rostas
- “From Roma Resistance to Roma Agency” by Dr. Anna Mirga-Kruszelnicka
- “Roma in Romania – from slavery to emancipation” by Dr. Ioan Valentin Negoi and Adela Bobu

In the next days we will be introducing the speakers and topics that they will be presenting during the training

Participation is open and free of charge, and prior registration is required.

Karel Holomek, einer der Mitbegründer des Museums für Roma-Kultur, ist von uns gegangen. Im Verlauf seines Lebens war er stets aktiv und setzte sich entschieden für die Rechte der Roma ein. Er gehörte zu den Gründungsmitgliedern der ersten tschechischen Roma-Organisation und spielte eine bedeutende Rolle bei der Entstehung des Museums für Roma-Kultur. Zudem leitete er ab demselben Jahr die gemeinnützige Organisation "Společenství Romů na Moravě" (Gemeinschaft der Roma in Mähren). Karel Holomek erhielt mehrere bedeutsame Auszeichnungen, darunter die Verdienstmedaille der Tschechischen Republik, die ihm von Präsident Václav Havel überreicht wurde. Des Weiteren wurde ihm der "Roma Spirit"-Preis verliehen sowie die Auszeichnung des Museums für Roma-Kultur für seine langjährige, unermüdliche Arbeit. Wir sprechen der Familie unser tiefstes und aufrichtiges Beileid aus.

Nach seiner letzten Ausstellung, ULTIMA VERBA in der Galerie Kai Dikhas im Jahr 2015 zerstörte der französische Künstler und Manouche Gérard Gartner in einer Performance unter selben Namen sein gesamtes künstlerisches Werk. In seinen Augen soll eine jede Generation ihre eigene Kunst schaffen und ihre Welt selbst formen. Die Filmacher*innen Eric Premel und Marine Blanken folgen dem Künstler während seiner Ausstellung in Berlin und vor allem in seiner französischen Heimat und dokumentieren in einem beeindruckenden Dokumentarfilm die Zerstörung, Gérards Kunst und Philosophie.
"Für alles gibt es eine Zeit. Einen zum Geborenwerden und einen zum Sterben. Einen zum Pflanzen, einen zum Entwurzeln. Eine Zeit zum Bauen und eine Zeit zum Abreißen. Pulver und alles kehrt zu Pulver zurück. Besser das Ende einer Sache als …“ es beginnt..."
Gérard Gartner, 88, Bildhauer, hat eine Fackel im Kopf. Als Gouailleur und Philosoph organisiert er den endgültigen Rückzug dessen, was ihn aufgebaut hat, um das Material freizugeben. Ein Film über die Romakultur, Boxen, Loyalität, Giacometti und Mülldeponien, Übermenschliches und Anarchie; ein Film, der vom Tod und vor allem vom Leben erzählt.
Der Film wird in französischer Sprache mit englischen Untertiteln gezeigt.
Gérard Gartner wird bei der Projektion des Filmes anwesend sein und Kai Dikhas ein weiters Mal besuchen.
Eintritt frei!

After his last exhibition, ULTIMA VERBA at the Kai Dikhas Gallery in 2015, the French artist and manouche Gérard Gartner destroyed his entire artistic oeuvre in a performance under the same name. In his eyes, each generation should create its own art and shape its own world. Filmmakers Eric Premel and Marine Blanken follow the artist during his exhibition in Berlin and especially in his French homeland and document the destruction, Gérard's art and philosophy in an impressive documentary film.
For everything there is a time. One to be born and one to die. One to plant, one to uproot. A time to build and a time to tear down. Powder and everything returns to powder. Better the end of a thing than ..." it begins..."
"For everything there is a time. One to be born and one to die. One to plant, one to uproot. A time to build and a time to tear down. Powder and everything returns to powder. Better the end of a thing than ..." it begins..."
Gérard Gartner, 88, sculptor, has a torch in his head. A gouailleur and philosopher, he organises the final withdrawal of what has built him up to release the material. A film about Roma culture, boxing, loyalty, Giacometti and rubbish dumps, the superhuman and anarchy; a film that tells of death and, above all, of life.
The film will be screened in French language with English subtitles.
Gérard Gartner will be present at the projection of the film and will visit Kai Dikhas once again.

CEIJA STOJKA: WE WERE ASHAMED

Opening: Wednesday August 2, 6 – 8 pm
Spaces of Misunderstandings by Luna De Rosa; 7pm

We are pleased to invite you to the opening of the exhibition Ceija Stojka : We Were Ashamed at ERIAC - European Roma Institute for Arts and Culture.

The exhibition presents art works of Ceija Stojka which are part of the Collection Kai Dikhas.

A white paper is filled with lines of black ink, showing the naked bodies of female prisoners, outlining bare breasts and bony ribcages, with hands covering genitalia. Across the legs in slender capitals: AUSCHWITZ. WE WERE ASHAMED. The drawing depicts prisoners of the concentration camp who were forced to line up and stand in front of SS officers. It represents a scene from Ceija Stojka’s own lived experience as she survived internment in the concentration camps of Auschwitz, Ravensbrück, and Bergen-Belsen.
Under the title Even Death is Afraid of Auschwitz, Ceija Stojka created a series of works dealing with her persecution experiences during the NS reign. This cycle consists mainly of black and white ink drawings and fewer oil paintings, in contrast to the more colorful and expressive paintings highlighting Roma resilience and survival by depicting scenes of nature, landscapes, and Roma wagons, as well as dance and family life moments.

Luna De Rosa is an Italian activist and multidisciplinary artist from the Roma diaspora who works and lives between Berlin and Milan. The body serves as the starting point of her artistic work. Through interventions in the public sphere, she expresses the relationship that binds the body to the social context that essentially governs and defines it. In recent years, her artistic work has focused on the vulnerability of ethnic minorities, particularly the Roma, who experience significant exclusion and racism.

International Roma Holocaust Remembrance Day: On August 2, 1944 – despite fierce resistance – 2,897 Roma men, women, and children were loaded onto trucks, taken to gas chambers, and killed in Auschwitz. Each year on August 2, we commemorate 500,000 Roma people murdered by the National Socialist regime during the Second World War.

Come to see the exhibition DETOX SWITZERLAND, DETOX EUROPE - 10 years of RJSaK Roma Jam Session art collective at Foundation Kai Dikhas.
The exhibition shows posters, costumes, performance video documentations of the group and thus gives an insight into the artistic world of RJSaK that, starting from Zurich Dadaism to contemporary Roma Futurism. It provides the audience with delicate aesthetic means for a peaceful coexistence and against the toxicity of racist populism.

CALL FOR ARTISTS!

The “SINTI* AND ROMA* ART IN CONTEXT” Artists-in-Residence Program was established in 2022 by the Documentation and Cultural Center of German Sinti and Roma in Heidelberg with support from the Center for International Cultural Education of the Goethe-Institute in Mannheim and is committed to promoting the work of contemporary artists and cultural sector professionals from the Sinti* und Roma* communities on an international level.

The program offers local, national, or international artists a two-month residency. The scholarship awardees selected for the residency program will be invited to Heidelberg to allow them to further develop their artistic positions. In addition to their creative work, the artists will participate in public programs and workshops. The residency program will also provide the artists with exchange and networking opportunities with research and cultural institutions, interesting personalities, as well as local communities.

The goal of the project is to enable the artists to make an important cultural and societal contribution, taking up and representing such current topics as: the culture of remembrance, cultural politics, activism, the fight against antigypsyism, and resistance through art.

Today we introduce one of the artists part of the Collection Kai Dikhas

GABI JIMÉNEZ

Gabi Jiménez is a French painter and artist... and Gitano.
In 2007, he represented France in the first Roma pavilion at the Venice Biennale.
There are numerous collective and solo exhibitions in which the artist represents the Roma and Traveller community and activates through these works so that French and Europeans can open their eyes to a situation that worsens year after year: discrimination in expulsions.
In 2013, after his personal exhibition at DIHAL - Interministerial Delegation for Housing and Access to Housing - in Paris, the French state bought him two canvases representing "Le Grand Paris". Then, in 2014, Gabi Jiménez is nominated by the Spanish Ministry of Culture and receives the "Painting and Visual Arts" award for all his work, which is militant and committed.
Gabi Jiménez's paintings are done in bright, singing colours, drawings with traces surrounded by black, stylising the travellers' culture and never reducing it to simple clichés. Behind the raptures of detail and joy at first glance, however, lies a very different truth: that of a shameful history of discrimination, violence, hatred and displacement. A history that is still relevant since the time after the Second World War.

Jiménez is currently one of the associate curators and artists part of the Barvalo exhibition at the Mucem, Marseille
