Solo Exhibition + Book Release
»NON GRATA | Roma people from 10 European countries«
For the past 9 years, Swedish photographer Åke Ericson has been documenting the life of the Roma peoples’ daily life across Europe in 17 journeys. This commitment has taken him on a journey through Czech Republic, France, Sweden, Kosovo, Hungary, Serbia, Romania, Switzerland, Spain and Slovakia to bear witness to these shunned societies. The resulting photographs create an honest portrait of a community ‘Non Grata’. Latin for “undesirable” or “not welcome” Ericson’s title suggests the discrimination many Roma face in daily life due to their last name or complexion.
These photographs will be published for the first time in this new book, NON GRATA (GOST Books), to coincide with the exhibition.
Thursday, May 24, 7 pm
Finissage with a Film screening & Artist Talk (held in English)
Screening of “Aus dem Leben eines Schrottsammlers” (bosnian with German subtitles) by Danis Tanović, followed by an Artist Talk with the photographer Åke Ericson.
