When the Romani Subaltern Speaks – Presentation at the Unlimited Science Conference organized by the Psychiatric Collection of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences

Since the nineteenth century, the academic discourse has seen manifold terms aimed at summing up the both complex and varied phenomena of outsider art. The word usage—spanning from Art brut, Self-taught Art, and Raw Art to Visionary Art, Folk Art, and Outsider Art—tells the story of cultural boundaries, which are constantly redrawn.They are also symptomatic of the different attitudes toward and rules of cultural manifestations. They shed light on the limits and contradictions in society regarding the exclusion mechanisms oppression and institutionalized inequalities. They also mirror how society fundamentally deals with its margins. The presentation is an experiment for a new, post-colonial reading of the works by Roma women artist, Omara. The presentation took place at the Unlimited Science

Conference on the 12th of November, 2010. The event was organized by the Psychiatric Collection of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
