Romani Čhib | Romani Language
The present exhibition is an investigation into aspects of Roma identity and their complex entanglement with language and different systems of knowledge production. While some notions, expressions and definitions only exist in and are thus unique to, the Romani language, others are in stark contrast to the meaning commonly assigned to those words by majoritarian culture. An interweaving of two divergent artistic vocabularies by Marina Rosselle (F) and Natali Tomenko (UA) inspires an in-depth examination of how language and meaning production play into the world-building strategies of minoritarian cultural producers.
The exhibition was curated by Timea Junghaus and Andrea Petrus and has been exhibited in ERIAC gallery space (Reinhardtstraße 41-43, 10117 Berlin) from 05.11.2021 to 31.03.2022.
