Photo exhibition: URBAN ROMA
21 August
“urban_roma” is a collection of more than 300 family photographs, selected by roma feminist Crina Marina Mureșanu from the personal archives of her family and friends, mostly in Bucharest’s 5th district. The photographs show Roma people from the urban environment, in their familiar setting and through different moments of their lives, throughout a few generations, from the 1950s to the late 1980s. They reveal an unexpected image of families and individuals belonging to the Roma ethnicity, devoid of stereotypes and exoticism, strikingly recognizable as poses, environment or attitude for anyone who has lived through this epoch. A selection of the original photographs is presented in the exhibition at One World Romania, while the entire collection can be browsed through, together with accompanying stories and texts on the blog dedicated to the project by Crina Marina Mureșanu: 

The photo exhibition can be visited Saturday, March 21st, at Mezanin.
