Why and how do our values influence our perceptions? What do we really know about Sinti and Roma? After an opening statement, Gilda-Nancy Horvath will be happy to answer all questions around Roma and Sinti, examining knowledge/myths and projections in a freewheeling dialogue with the participants. Of particular interest to people working in the fields of art/culture/media/education.

With: Gilda Nancy Horvath

Each workshop afternoon centers on a thematic chapter of the exhibition. We develop questions and discover new perspectives to answer them in an exchange with our guests.

Please register at besucherservice@kunsthallewien.at. Both participation in the workshop and entrance to the exhibition are free.

Language(s): German (and English, French, Romani, Romanian, Hungarian, … as needed).

Following a suggestion by the Soviet writer Sergei Tretyakov, the workshop series LET’S BE REALISTIC! is an invitation to try out whether and how utopias of social justice can be developed based on joint writing, narration, and discussion of biographies of things. The objects, archival images, and partly fictional artworks shown in the exhibition Averklub Collective. Manuš Means Human provide the starting point for the project. The show tells a special story about the history of the Romani people in real socialism. What does it mean when we include local readings as well as objects and stories of the participants into this visual essay?

In accordance with the applicable COVID-19 prevention regulations, the workshops will take place as group activities at Kunsthalle Wien Museumsquartier, in the form of field trips, and/or online.
