We Roma: A Critical Reader in Contemporary Art inquires into the contemporary moment through Roma knowledges as they resonate within artistic and intellectual practices today. As the so-called West’s misconceptions about progress and logos inherited from the wider legacy of the modern are being unmasked through unprecedented transformative shifts in politics, society, aesthetics, and economics, how can we better understand and learn from the commonalities among the variety of
political struggles within historically marginalized communities such as Roma in Europe and in what we came to know as majority society alike? With the emblematic claim in the artistic imaginary “we Roma,” implicating within it society at large, how can we invoke the possibility of a different world and alternative futures? Artists, theorists, writers, and activists—both Roma and non-Roma—speculate on such questions and the possibility of art to imagine the world otherwise. back
