Joakim Eskildsen – The Roma Journeys
Oct 29, 2016 — Jan 14, 2017
Opening: Friday, 28 October, 6 – 9 pm
Gallery Taik Persons is pleased to present Joakim Eskilsen’s solo show Roma Journeys.
Ten years after Joakim Eskildsen completed his work on The Roma Journeys and after touring more than 30 venues, Gallery Taik Persons has the pleasure to present the project for the first time at its Berlin gallery.
Between 2000 and 2006 Joakim Eskildsen and writer Cia Rinne undertook journeys in seven different countries with a view to gaining an insight into the life of the Roma and the conditions they face. They visited Roma communities in Hungary, Greece, Romania, France, Russia, and Finland as well as possibly related groups in India, spending considerable lengths of time among the people whom they wanted to learn about and, where possible, they lived with them for a while, allowing them to build close connections to the families.
