Half an hour before the official opening of the international exhibition “All That We Have in Common” (Sa so si amenge jekhethane/All That We Have in Common), MSU offers the opportunity for an introduction to the works of the exhibition with a personal curator – a guide on November 8, at 7:30 p.m.
The exhibition is organized in partnership with the 14th European Nomad Biennale for Contemporary Art – Manifesta. The curators are: Mustafa Asan, Mo Diener, Mira Gaqina, and Jovanka Popova.
Artists whose works will be exhibited are Delaine Le Bas (England), Ahmet Kadri (North Macedonia), Sead Kazandziu (Albania), Lubos Kotlar and Robert Gabris (Slovakia), Roma Jam Session Art Collective – Mustafa Asan, Mo Diner, Milena Petrovic (North Macedonia/Switzerland/Serbia), Nihad Nino Pushija (Bosnia and Herzegovina/Germany), Andre Jeno Ratzsch (Germany), Emilia Rigova (Slovakia), Ceija Stojka (Austria), Dan Turner (England) and Durmish Kazim (North Macedonia).
The Museum of Contemporary Art – Skopje is located in an area that is an organic part of the city in which the Roma community has lived for years, which is often the subject of political and social exclusion, misinterpretations, speculations and prejudices. The themes dealt with by Roma artists in this setting open various issues related to systemic violence against Roma and other marginalized communities, the crisis of identity politics, gender inequality and the migration crisis. The purpose of the exhibition is to expand the political imagination beyond the stereotypical representation and through shared knowledge from internationally known and domestic artists to articulate different ways of self-representation and to centralize and make visible the ignored and inaccessible marginalized narratives about the Roma.
