Within the residence in Vienna, I would like to process two areas that I would like to develop. The first of them relates to the work and the topic, which is associated with issues of cultural relativism and cultural identity focused on the Roma culture. I wonder how the Roma cultural institutions (in the Czech Republiv, e.g. The Museum of Romani Culture) identify (create) a national or ethnic awareness, emancipation processes, or the uniqueness and how positive the effects are for society and its perception of the Roma and by the Roma themselves.
