The release of the “Travelling images. Małgorzata Mirga-Tas” catalogue

Two editions of Małgorzata Mirga-Tas's album for the exhibition “Wandering Images“.

The catalogue accompanying the exhibition of Małgorzata Mirga-Tas is already on its way to bookstores. It presents the art of the Roma-Polish artist and social activist, specialising in creating monumental installations, images, and collages out of textiles and clothes.


This book is the first such comprehensive analysis of the art of Małgorzata Mirga-Tas – the laureate of Polityka’s Passport, Polish representative at the 59th Venice Biennale. It provides an overview of the artist’s works that deal with transnational identity of contemporary Roma people and their Polish history. One of the most important pieces is the series “Siukar Manusia” about the Romanies from Nowa Huta – prepared especially for the show in Kraków.


Working through anti-Roma stereotypes and biases constitutes an important theme of both the catalogue and the exhibition. Mirga-Tas makes this issue a focal point of her oeuvre. This is why the publication includes texts by contemporary researchers as well as reproductions of artworks created by artists from past centuries who depicted Roma as criminals and portrayed them in a sexualised or exotic way. Mirga-Tas confronts those images by telling a different story, showing private. family life unknown to strangers.
