La galerie de la Biennale
For years now artists Lucy Orta and Maria Papadimitriou and exhibition curator Gabi Scardi have been studying the situation of the Roms in Europe. This collective work is being carried through in parallel with an interdisciplinary project financed by the European Union and involving four countries: Italy, the UK, Greece and Romania. While the Roms – or Gypsies – are recognised as an ethnic entity by the EU, they remain the focus of the most enduring prejudices and stereotyping. For the members of the Temporary Autonomous Museum for All, the Roms in all their diversity represent the paradigm of those who aspire to autonomy without abandoning their right to a voice in the public arena: "If we consider habitat as the mirror of those who live in it," says Maria Papadimitriou, "the habitats of the Roms are the mirror of the world we live in."
