After a four-year construction phase, the RomArchive – the international digital archive of Romani people finally went online. There are 12 million Romani people living in Europe, most of them still living on the margins of society and suffering discrimination, criminalization and persecution. Positive counter-images or genuine reports on reality and richness of Romani culture are scarce. Especially voices of Romani people themselves are barely heard. Against this background the RomArchive was created – an ever-growing collection of art of all genres, historical documents and scientific texts. The self-presentation of Romani people is the main principle: contentwise, each of the 10 archive sections is curated by a special team of curators. The project is supported by the Federal Cultural Foundation.
