Hate calls and even death threats have been directed at organizers of an art show in Bucharest featuring works by Roma artists, reported Deutschlandfunk. Before the show opened at the Museum of the Romanian Peasant, a nationalist member of the Romanian Parliament brought it to the attention of his more right-wing constituents, deeming it an “irresponsible insult” to Romanian culture and claiming that exhibiting Sinti and Roma artists promoted homosexuality. The German radio station covering the story interviewed Berlin Gallery director Moritz Pankok, who represents George Vasilescu (a Roma artist who’d contributed work to the show). The name of Pankok’s gallery, Kai Dikhas, means “place of seeing” in Roma, and Kai Dikhas focuses on representing Roma and Sinti artists from around the world. “For many people, it’s a provocation that Sinti and Roma artists make their own contemporary art,” he said.
