Romanistan

A film by Luca Vitione in the municipal cinema City 46

On May 25, 2019, the Italian artist Luca Vitone and his crew set off from Bologna to Chandigarh to trace the migration of the Rom * nja people from northwest India to Europe at the end of the first millennium. The film, a real road movie, begins symbolically with the frescoes by the first Roma painter, Antonio Solario, known as the Zingaro. In two vans, the crew crossed the Balkans, Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Iran and Pakistan in almost two months to reach India. She interviews Rom * nja who live in these countries: the Croatian Parliamentary Minister Veljko Kajtazi, the activist Lilyana Kovatcheva, the journalist Orhan Galjus, the musician and teacher Santino Spinelli and many others. Moments of life alternate with views of the many landscapes crossed. The film tells the story of a people without a state or an army that has not found a place to gather since the diaspora, but is characterized by a strong identity. The title Romanistan is derived from Manush Romanov’s idea of ​​a utopian nation of Rome*nja.

Romanistan is part of the solo exhibition Power by Luca Vitone in the Weserburg Museum of Modern Art (until August 15), an exhibition as part of Smell it! Smell in art – ten exhibitions in eight museums from May 2021 in the state of Bremen.

Artist talk with Luca Vitone

Luca Vitone (* 1964 in Genoa, lives in Milan and Berlin) traces the diverse influences that are deposited in rooms and determine both their appearance and our view of them. The Weserburg Museum of Modern Art is currently showing the first solo exhibition in a museum by the internationally renowned artist in Germany. Power revolves around the different modes of representation of the places in which we live, our attempt to gain emotional access, the imprints we leave behind in our environment, as well as the interweaving of landscape, emotional belonging, and cultural and institutionalized identity. Power is part of Smell it! Smell in art – 10 exhibitions in 8 museums in the state of Bremen. In an interview with Weserburg director Janneke de Vries, Luca Vitone talks about the charm of the invisible, why portraits don’t just work with painting and photography, or what dust, power and children’s voices have to do with the German forest. This will be followed by a screening of Vitone’s film Romanistan at City 46 at 5.30 p.m.
