HateFree?
20. June 2018. - 15. July
Opening: 19. June 2018 at 18:00
Curator: Zuzana Štefková
The concept of the exhibition is based on the conviction that the dismal position of the Roma minority in our society is the result of a systemic failure of mechanisms that should ensure dignified living conditions for all people, regardless of the colour of their skin or their ethnic origin. Raging from inequalities in access to quality education and legal employment to racially motivated attacks, Roma in Central and Eastern Europe are fighting discrimination in many forms.

Artists exhibiting in the project HateFree? stand on the side of those who are stigmatized because of their otherness. They analyse the mechanisms that define certain group as inferior or socially excluded and show the danger of escalation of hatred in our society. At the same time, they demonstrate the belief in the symbolic power of the artistic gesture of solidarity and its concrete effect outside the narrowly defined world of art.

Exhibition HateFree? is a follow-up of the HateFree project responding to an increase in hateful attitudes toward minorities in the Czech Republic.

Exhibiting artists: Ivana Mariposa Čonková (CZ), Magda Fabiańczyk (PL), Francesca a Sára (CZ), LukᚠHoudek (CZ), Oto Hudec (SK), Moje Ralsko (CZ), Nemes Csaba (HU)
