Last chance: „The Dead are not Dead“ mit Delaine Le Bas, Daniel Baker, Otto Pankok, Francisco de Goya, Robert Gabris, Helios Gómez und und und… Vielen Dank für diese tolle Ausstellung!

Nach neun Monaten, 73 geöffneten Tagen und einem fulminanten Flamenco-Fest* am vergangenen Wochenende geht "Actually, the Dead Are Not Dead. Una forma de ser" zu Ende. Trotz wiederkehrender pandemiebedingter Schließungen war die Ausstellung über all die Wochen präsent und wurden ihre Themen unter anderem in verschiedenen Online-Formaten diskutiert: die politischen und emanzipatorischen Dimensionen des Festes, insbesondere des Flamencos, sowie Formen der Diskriminierung, des Widerstands und der Selbstermächtigung von Sinti*zze und Rom*nja.

After nine months, 73 open days, and a brilliant flamenco festival* last weekend, "Actually, the Dead Are Not Dead: Una forma de ser" comes to a close. Despite recurring closures due to the pandemic, the exhibition has been present throughout the weeks and its themes have been discussed in various online formats, among others: the political and emancipatory dimensions of the festival, especially of flamenco, as well as forms of discrimination, resistance and self-empowerment of Sinti and Roma.

A beautiful new piece by George M Vasilescu, soon on view Galerie Kaidikhas GmbH&Co.Kg!

"IF" lead by George Mihai-Vasilescu supported by ERIAC in the framework of the "Going Digital Culture" category of the Arts and Culture Innovation Program Fund (https://eriac.org/eriac-arts-and-culture-innovation-program/)
This project comes with a controversial question - why are exemplary figures preferred as objects of sculpture, and the poor and those with simple lives are set aside. The “IF” project consists of a set of 6 sculptures, made in collaboration with the Roma craftsman Nevers. The six sculptures, the size between 60-80cm represent the busts of six simple Roma women, without much education and with precarious jobs. Each of the six sculptures is accompanied by a 2-minute video with the model of the sculpture caught in an activity that will highlight its expressiveness - serving a draft beer in a cheap tavern, cooking, washing some block stairs, etc.
Vasilescu regarding the project: “The series of works, Roma Women, is introspection about what human nature means. I made these shapes starting from the idea of a strand of hair.” Vasilescu has created a total of 6 pieces that are associated with a video of a woman, the ones Vasilescu got inspired by.

OPEN CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS

10 Commissions will be offered to International artists

On the 8th of April 2021 we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the groundbreaking 1st World Romany Congress which took place in London in 1971 and which has been a milestone of the International Romany Movement. Arts and Culture have been a strong inspiration for the political movement of Sinti and Roma and continue to play an essential role as a form of civic expression as well as a strategy of emancipation and cultural resistance.

On the occasion of the Golden Jubilee of the 1st World Romany Congress, OBLIQUE ARTS, Foundation Kai Dikhas in cooperation with the European Roma Institute for Arts and Culture (ERIAC) are happy to announce an international competition for Roma artists, performers, writers and other arts and cultural producers to submit a proposal for arts inspired by the World Romany Congress.

How to participate?

Roma arts and culture creatives, inclusive of all art forms, are invited to submit a one-page proposal and, up to 4 images at 300 dpi, via. email or WeTransfer, or videos no longer than 4 mins (or edited sample of longer pieces), describing the art inspired by the 1st World Romany Congress. The organisers welcome contemporary arts, including performance, musical compositions, poetry or creative writing etc. An International Jury will offer 10 commissions to International artists for the development of their idea.

Each selected contributor will receive an endowment of €300, sponsored by the Arts Council England & Foundation Kai Dikhas.

The commissioned pieces will be featured in a special commemorative online exhibition, part of a global program celebrating 1st World Romany Congress which presents contributions from all across Europe, as well as from India
and the Americas. We hope to be able to show the actual work later in the year subject to gallery considerations around Covid-19.

Deadline for submission

Submissions until March 15th to: [email protected]

"Malerei war für mich schon immer ... ja das war mein Traum: Maler sein. Ich bin nur ein Mensch. Deswegen: mich nervt das einfach, Roma, oder eben ‚Zigeuner‘ zu sein, ich weiß überhaupt nicht, was das ist."
Imrich Tomáš

Am 12. Februar 2021 verstarb nach langer Krankheit der 1948 in Dobra/Slowakei geborene Berliner Künstler Imrich Tomáš. Tomáš zählte zu den wichtigsten Künstler*innen der Minderheit der Roma. Zeitlebens beschäftigte er sich mit zeitgenössischer Kunst. Nachdem es ihm 1969 gelungen war, aus der Tschechoslowakei nach West-Berlin zu emigrieren, fand der junge Künstler schnell Anschluss an die lebendige Kreuzberger Kunstszene. Von 1974 - 1980 studierte Imrich Tomáš an der UDK Berlin bei Prof. Horst Hirsig. Sein Studium der „Bildenden Künste“ konnte er mit der Auszeichnung des „Meisterschülers“ beenden. Es folgte ein erfülltes und engagiertes Künstlerleben, das von einem unbedingten selbstkritischen Streben nach künstlerische Qualität geprägt war. Zunächst Werke des Fotorealismus, später solche des surrealen Realismus schaffend, entwickelte er schließlich eine sehr eigene natürliche Bildsprache in Form abstrakter, zuweilen großformatiger vielfarbiger Hanf-Faser-Reliefe, für die er internationale Beachtung fand. Die Suche nach Freiheit bestimmte Leben und Kunst von Imrich Tomáš. Seine sensiblen mal kräftigen und mal filigranen Hanf-Faser-Strukturen folgen jeweils eigenen Gesetzen und schaffen so eine ästhetisch eigenständige, freie Kunst, die der von äußeren Regeln und Gesetzen bestimmten Welt diametral gegenübersteht. Seit 2011 arbeitete Imrich Tomáš mit der Galerie Kai Dikhas zusammen. Seine Werke waren fester Bestandteil der Ausstellungen der Galerie im In- und Ausland und unter anderem in Spanien, Frankreich und Tschechien zu sehen. Die Galerie widmete dem Künstler drei umfangreiche Ausstellungen „Fernweh . Fragmente“ (2012), „arakhelpes“ (2018) und zuletzt die aktuelle Ausstellung „Retrospektive . Mein Leben in West Berlin“, die auch noch nach der derzeitigen Pandemie bedingten Schließzeit der Ausstellungsorte im Aufbau Haus zu sehen sein wird. Die neu gegründete Stiftung Kai Dikhas, die die Sammlung Kai Dikhas, in der sich verschiedene Werke des Künstlers befinden, übernommen hat, wird sich weiter für sein Werk engagieren und es öffentlich zugänglich halten. Die Stiftung Kai Dikhas verliert einen wichtigen Künstler, Berater und Freund.

Moritz Pankok Kurator der Stiftung Kai Dikhas

The Kai Dikhas Foundation mourns the death of Imrich Tomáš (1948 - 2021).

"Painting has always been for me ... yes, that was my dream: to be a painter. I am only a human being. That's why being a Roma, or a 'Gypsy', simply annoys me, I don't know what it is."
Imrich Tomáš

On 12 February 2021, the Berlin-based artist Imrich Tomáš, born in 1948 in Dobra, Slovakia, passed away after a long illness. Tomáš was one of the most important artists of the Roma minority. Throughout his life, he was concerned with contemporary art. After he managed to emigrate from Czechoslovakia to West Berlin in 1969, the young artist quickly found his way into the lively Kreuzberg art scene. From 1974 to 1980 Imrich Tomáš studied at the UDK Berlin with Prof. Horst Hirsig. He was able to complete his studies in "Fine Arts" with the distinction of "Master Student". A fulfilled and committed artistic life followed, which was characterised by an unconditional self-critical striving for artistic quality. Initially creating works of photorealism, later those of surreal realism, he finally developed his own natural pictorial language in the form of abstract, sometimes large-format, multi-coloured hemp-fibre reliefs, for which he received international acclaim. The search for freedom determined Imrich Tomáš's life and art. His sensitive, sometimes strong and sometimes filigree hemp-fibre structures each follow their own natural laws and thus create an aesthetically independent, free art that is diametrically opposed to the world determined by external rules and laws. Imrich Tomáš has been working with the Kai Dikhas Gallery since 2011. His works have been an integral part of the gallery's exhibitions at home and abroad and have been shown in Spain, France and the Czech Republic, among other places. The gallery dedicated three extensive exhibitions to the artist "Fernweh . Fragments" (2012), "arakhelpes" (2018) and most recently the current exhibition "Retrospective . My Life in West Berlin", which will still be on view at Aufbau Haus after the current pandemic-related closure of the exhibition venues. The newly established Kai Dikhas Foundation, which has taken over the Kai Dikhas Collection containing various works by the artist, will continue to promote his work and keep it accessible to the public. The Kai Dikhas Foundation loses an important artist, advisor and friend.
