Discussion will be held in Slovak and Czech. has recently published a book whose aim is to reflect on the idea of a museum of Romani culture in Slovakia. This book was conceived as a new format for the further envisioning of the museum together with artists, academics, cultural practitioners and activists working in Slovakia and other European countries. They were asked to bring their contribution in conceptualizing the museum and/or address various aspects of Romani visual arts, culture, history, their positioning within dominant discourses and their relevance in the museum context.

The publication also discusses a need for a new institution conceived from today’s perspective, an institution which goes beyond the traditional ethnographic approach, and is informed by interdisciplinary thinking, de-colonial and feminist theories and practices, and which builds on participation and collaboration.
