Here we stand, Health and Freedom

Art, Contemporary art Free
Aquí nos quedamos, Salud y Libertad

Under the auspices of the Gypsy Cultural Institute comes this exhibition project that brings together works by some 20 contemporary artists, called 'Sastipen thaj Mestepen' ('Health and Freedom'), which is also a traditional greeting of the gypsy people. The gypsies are Europe's largest minority, and they live all across the continent. Currently between 10 and 15 million European citizens are gypsies, one million of whom live in Spain. Not all of them sing flamenco or beg for money at traffic lights, contrary to popular stereotype. In recent years, artists who belong to this minority group have been the driving force behind a movement where they express their emotions and thoughts via art, with the aim of therefore contributing to the enrichment of the cultural discourse of society.
