Romani History X
Delaine and Damian Le Bas arranged re-drawn maps, historical images and their photographs on the fences in front of the Gorki. Their photographs include some of Delaine's Romani Embassy performance series, which was revived for the opening of the 3. Berliner Herbstsalon. The topographic maps and city maps served as the starting point of Damian Le Bas's artistic overhaul and treatment of the travelling of the Roma and their demands:
“We're claiming this space for ourselves. We, the constrained, limited and defined by those who want to control, name and silence us. Here we are.”
