We are honored to be working with Timea Junghaus, art historian, contemporary art curator and cultural activist of Roma origin. Junghaus was curator of the First Roma Pavilion at the 2007 Venice Contemporary Art Biennale. As a researcher she has mainly dealt with the issues of cultural difference, postcolonialism and minority representation. She is the founder and director of the European Roma Cultural Foundation, a Budapest-based NGO committed to achieving better recognition for Roma art. She is also the founder of Gallery 8, a Roma Contemporary Art Gallery in the predominantly Roma Disctrict 8 in Budapest.
Together with Timea, we were joined by media specialist Dr.Maria Bogdan, and legendary Roma academics/activists Agnes Daroczi and Jenő Zsigó. We were honored to have the chance to learn from these esteemed leaders of the community there.
