Current exhibitions

In our Stockholm exhibit space we are now showing the exhibitions below.

In the Swedish part of our website you can also read about exhibitions from The Living History Forum, that are now showing in other museums around Sweden.

Threads of Life

Threads of Life is the first ever exhibition in Stockholm of Mirga-Tas’s extraordinary oeuvre. It presents two recent threads, or themes, in Mirga-Tas’s work. One tells the story of Swedish-Roma advocacy through the ages. Here, Mirga-Tas layers the personal with the public and the political.

Małgorzata Mirga-Tas is a Polish-Roma artist and activist who in vibrant textiles depicts an iconography of the Roma, the largest ethnic minority in Europe. In her artwork, she reshapes stereotypical conventions and describes the Roma as a transcultural, multilingual and non-violent people.

This exhibition has been produced by
Curator: Johanna Warsza
Exhibition advisor: Fred Taikon
Thank you to Gothenburg Art Gallery, Gothenburg Museum of Art, University of Arts, Crafts and Design, É Romani Glinda, the Frantzwagner Society, Le Romane Nevimata, National association for Roma Rights in Society and Sweden International Roma Film Festival.

Parts of the exhibition Threads of Life have been produced by Göteborgs Konsthall (Gothenburg Art Gallery) in connection with their 2023 exhibition Suno Mangie Dzialas/Jag har en dröm/I have a dream.

Legacy of silence

This exhibition gives the Holocaust a face to the world in the form of personal testimony about the suffering of the Roma during the Second World War. Making their stories visible is also a form of redress. The words of the survivors make the genocide concrete and give it a presence today, more than 75 years later. Our aspirations are that this exhibition will make it easier for people today to take in this brutal aspect of our history and that it may provide an impetus for further reading.

The exhibition is based on the Swedish book Det tysta arvet – romer under Förintelsen (Legacy of Silence – Roma during the Holocaust)

This exhibition has been produced by the City of Gothenburg in collaboration with the Living History Forum.
