What Should I be Afraid of? Roma Artist Ceija Stojka

We wish you all a wonderful and relaxing summer. To beat the heat in July and August, we warmly invite you to cool off in the Gallery of the ACFNY by visiting our current exhibition What Should I be Afraid of? Roma Artist Ceija Stojka, which is open throughout the entire summer, daily from 10 AM to 6 PM. 

The ACFNY is pleased to present the exhibition What Should I be Afraid of? Roma Artist Ceija Stojka, an exhibition curated by Dr. Lorely FrenchCarina Kurta and Dr. Stephanie Buhmann in collaboration with the Ceija Stojka International Association.

Comprised of over sixty paintings and drawings culled from collections in Europe and the United States, the installation celebrates the extraordinary art and life of Romni artist, writer, activist, and educator Ceija Stojka, survivor of Auschwitz, Ravensbrück, and Bergen-Belsen concentration camps. A monograph will be published on the occasion of this exhibition


2023 marks the 90th year of Stojka’s birth and the 10th year of her passing. It further celebrates the 30th Anniversary since Roma were recognized as an official ethnic group in Austria (1993) after years of activism during which Ceija Stojka stood together with other Austrian Roma to become part of the social majority. 2023 also commemorates 50 Years of Austria’s International Cultural Diplomacy (Austria Kultur International, 1973.
