Safe European Home?
symposium and panel discussion


Date: Sat, May 28, 10:00 - 20:00
Venue: Architekturzentrum Wien - Podium
Admission free!


Phenomena such as our uncertain living conditions and forced or voluntary mobility are images that are primarily ascribed to marginalised groups or people with transnational biographies to this day. This is in contrast to the increasing number of heterogeneous population groups in Europe whose ways of life are increasingly impacted on by increasing social insecurity. The symposium addresses the topics of global society, structural social inequality, the dissolution of boundaries and displaced lifestyles from the perspective of art theory, sociology, postcolonial theory, antiziganism research, feminism, architecture and Fine Art, and asks questions about current social conditions and possibilities for empowerment and the establishment of visibility, and individual proactive possibilities for marginalised positions like those of the ethnic Roma community.

Filmnight: Safe European Home?


Date: Wed, Jun 1, 19-23:59h
Venue: Architekturzentrum Wien - Podium
Admission free!


The film night brings together a selection of current films that engage with the topic of being Roma in today\'s Europe. To counter the exclusion and indiscriminate criminalisation of this transnational minority, voices are brought into the picture that tell of successful self-empowerment, the significance of an equal opportunities based approach to education and the need for a new solidarity.


curated by: Ursula Glaeser (Verein Roma-Service), Astrid Kury (Akademie Graz), Delaine & Damian Le Bas (artists), Margarethe Makovec (< rotor > Graz) and Suzana Milevska (curator of the exhibition \'Roma Protokoll\')
