1 Roma Manifest


The “1 Roma Manifest Zurich” expresses a number of political and artistic demands regarding urban space. The project is based in the history of the Roma and is the result of our research on their recognition as a cosmopolitan minority and their own artistic ideas on the topic. The mode of hanging is a response to the long-standing banishment of Roma from public places. The posters signalize to a certain extent a settling down in public space. The “1 Roma Manifest Zurich” consists of a set of 10 DIN A2 posters in single-color printing. The manifesto was published in 2016 and posted for two weeks as a parallel event of the manifestos on official billboards in the city space. At the same time, it announced the RJSaK Symposium “Open Theory Lectures” in Shedhalle Zurich.
