Ceija Stojka. This Has Happened
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
With this exhibition, Austrian-Romani artist Ceija Stojka (Kraubath, Austria, 1933 – Vienna, Austria, 2013) offers a testimony, exceptional not only for its unusualness but also for its artistic quality, on the persecution and genocide of the gypsy community under the rule of Nazi Germany.
Deported at age ten along with her family, Stojka survived three concentration camps during World War II, only to fully realize what she'd gone through some forty years later, between 1988 and 2012, when she embarked on an intense exercise of her memory through writing, drawing and painting.
