Ceija Stojka, a Roma artist of her century

Wednesday May 16th at 12.30

La Maison Rouge
10 bd de la Bastille
75012 Paris

Ceija Stojka was born in Austria in 1933, her family were Lovara Roma horse traders from Central Europe. Ceija was ten years old when she was deported with her mother, Marie Sidi, and other family members. She survived three concentration camps : Auschwitz-Birkenau, Ravensbrück and Bergen-Belsen. It was only forty years later, in 1988 at the age of fifty-five, that she felt the need and the necessity to tell her story and embarked on a vast act of memory. Though considered illiterate, she wrote several poignant books in a poetic and highly personal style. Her art includes representations of the terrible years of war and captivity, but also colourful idyllic landscapes which evoke the pre-war years of the Stojka family, who lived freely in the Ausrtian countryside

Visit led by, Xavier Marchand, co-curator of the exhibition.
