"ART, ACTIVISM & POLITICS OF STEREOTYPES: A "GYPSY SHOW'" WITH SANI RIFATI
Please join us for a talk that will focus on Roma history, music, and culture. Despite the recent attention, or even hype, surrounding the cultural production of the "Gypsies," vast majority of Roma artists can barely make a living, let alone enter the world music stage. Brands that we usually associate with this culture, "Gypsy Caravan" and "Gypsy Spirit", are more often then not far removed from the actual existing Roma culture and contexts of racist violence unfolding in Europe. Come and celebrate International Roma Day, in solidarity with Romani struggles for dignity and internationalism.
