Meet the people behind the myth. This is the exhibition where Roma tell about their everyday life and history - filled with alienation, camp life, activism, joy, traditions, music and hope.

The exhibition is the result of a collaboration with representatives from Roma groups, the Living History Forum, the Göteborg City Museum, freelance journalists and a photographer.
