Małgorzata Mirga-Tas: Re-Enchanting the World
23.04.2022 – 27.11.2022
The artist and activist Małgorzata Mirga-Tas is representing Poland at the 59th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia. For the first time in the over 120-year history of the Biennale, a Roma artist is representing the Polish Pavilion at the Biennale Arte 2022. The project Re-enchanting the World by Małgorzata Mirga-Tas is an attempt to find the place of the Roma community in European art history. The exhibition is curated by Wojciech Szymański and Joanna Warsza and is commissioned by Zachęta — National Gallery of Art. Małgorzata Mirga-Tas is a DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Fellow in 2022. With her work she is challenging stereotypes, presenting an insightful, unprejudiced picture of the Roma community, and drawing attention to the role women have played in Romani history.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue in Polish and English, which, in addition to the curators’ texts, includes essays by specially invited writers (Ali Smith, Damian Le Bas, scholar Ethel Brooks), and poems by Teresa Mirga and Jan Mirga.
Supported by DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program with funds from the German Foreign Federal Office.
Małgorzata Mirga-Tas is fellow of the Artists-in-Berlin Program in 2022.
