The Family Archives exhibition is a subjective counterpoint to research into the public and institutional archives.

This research is carried out with the participation of European Sinti and Roma public figures, intellectuals, artists, citizens and youth, who are willing to share their own family collections and experiences.

The private archives dissolve the differences and connect the experiences between European citizens, unveiling Sinti and Roma diasporic history as a significant contribution to the common understanding of contemporary Europe. 
This touching journey comprises childhood memories, precious personal family relics, self-definition statements and photographic material, all intertwined to explore the poetics of belonging, history and past, offering new perspectives for a mutual, polyphonic European future. 

Moreover, Family Archives is enriched by artworks by Romani artist, curator and art theorist Daniel Baker, which relate to the intimate dimension of home and to the value of roots.

To respect the privacy of all participants, the presented people, voices and family relics are displayed in anonymous form.

The exhibition has been curated by ERIAC in the framework of the Roma Components of the German Council of Europe Presidency during 2021.

Curators: Sofia Erto, Ráhel Rudolf, Timea Junghaus

* The exhibition is an adaptation of the original Diaspora Europe: Family Archives exhibition presented at Glaspavillon, Volhsbühne in December 2020.
