RomaMoMA

RomaMoMA is a transnational, collaborative and discursive art project of the European Roma Institute of Arts and Culture (ERIAC) and OFF-Biennale Budapest. It is a platform to envision and discuss the possible forms of a Roma museum of modern and contemporary art that will spread in time and space through a series of exhibitions, discussions, and art projects.  It will invite Roma and non-Roma artists, cultural experts, scholars and civil society. RomaMoMA is to perform an institution which, hopefully soon, materializes into a cutting-edge agent of the contemporary arts and culture scene. RomaMoMA is guided and supported by the think-tank, which is assembled of experts of various fields of art and the humanities, in order to exchange ideas on the necessity and possible roles of a transnational museum of Roma contemporary art, and to come up with a collective proposal for the institution of such a museum.

Within the RomaMoMA initiative, ERIAC is launching an Alliance of Institutions for European Roma Cultural Inclusion to conduct a policy change. We invite all public institutions in Europe working with arts and culture – museums, concert halls, academic institutions, cultural decision-makers, to reshape museum protocols and join the Alliance of Institutions for European Roma Cultural Inclusion! Start the change within your own institution/ organization!

 

Find the RomaMoMa Manifesto for the Alliance of Institutions for the European Roma Cultural Inclusion here

 

Join the alliance by filling out the inquiry form and commit to an institutional operation and programming that ensures the long-term cultural inclusion of Roma first into our culture and then into our societies. Don´t hesitate to reach out (eriac@eriac.org), with your institution`s Roma inclusion policy to discuss uncertainties, questions and future strategies and to receive the certification, the membership package and the expertise you need (if any).

 

Follow the initiatives of other institutions on ERIAC´s Instagram account (eriac_official_account) and use #RomaMoMA to post you upcoming contemporary Roma art and cultural initiative.

 

The first initiative of RomaMoMA, an online group exhibition is now available here
The exhibition “Performing the Museum” is performing the imagined museum, which has been a long desired initiative of the Roma community, through dialogues and engagement with contemporary art.
