Wende Museum – “What Should I Be Afraid Of?”

Join us at the Wende Museum this Friday, March 29, at 2:00 p.m. for an insightful program dedicated to Ceija Stojka, a remarkable Roma artist and activist who survived the Holocaust as a child and then turned to art to process her trauma.

Delve into an illustrated introduction to Stojka’s remarkable life through a discussion of the first English monograph dedicated to her: Roma Artist Ceija Stojka – What Should I Be Afraid Of? (Hirmer Publishers, 2024).

The afternoon will feature highlights from Stojka’s work, including pieces on display in our current exhibition Ceija Stojka and Scenes of Roma Life, showcasing her vivid reflections on pre-war Roma life and her harrowing experiences in the camps.

Speakers Dr. Susanne Keppler-Schlesinger and Dr. Stephanie Buhmann, both contributors to the monograph, will guide us through Stojka’s legacy.

Don’t miss this opportunity to engage with the powerful work of Ceija Stojka at the Wende Museum.
