'Roma Issue. A Project with Majority' looks upon the biggest minority in Europe as a source of possible, not apparent but vital political and social inspiration. Roma are most often stigmatized and marginalized and even social programs introduce an irreducible difference between the normative majority and the marked Other. 'Roma Issue' is an invitation to forget culture's specific set of rules and asks how Romani culture could become a horizon of possible scenarios for reworking democratic tools, and what kind of models it could provide when it comes to collectivity, mobility, post-nationalistic and anti-territorial agenda, general assemblies, or self-design and daring architecture.
The project consists of the first individual presentation of Pavel Braila's work in Poland with 'Baron's Hill': a video on the typology of the Romani villas in the Moldavian city of Soroca, and a trailer of his new project 'Talking Letters', a documentary on Romani language. Additionally, one-day interventions will take place in a beautiful Romani villa by artists, activists and researchers – including talks about 'Border Theories', which prove that a division minor versus major puts a threat to holistic perception of reality and guided tours on villa architecture of Polska Roma. A Romani flag will be hung on the top of the water tower – the seat of CCA Konin – an installation by the activist Marek Miller, which can also be seen from passing trains on the Berlin-Warszawa express line.
