RomArchive: Call for Key Visual

Deadline: 31 January 2016
Open to: everyone interested in graphic design and Roma minority presentation
winner will be commissioned for an appropriate fee and will be promoted as creator of the key visual


RomArchive is devised as an international digital archive for art of the Roma – a constantly growing collection of art from all fields, enhanced by scholarly texts and historical documents. The archive’s magazine-­‐style web interface, with images and stories providing vivid introductions, and its aesthetic appeal will inspire users to delve deeper into the topics presented. RomArchive will go online in 2018.

Until then, the curators’ work and the overall development of the project can be tracked on a blog, on Facebook, Twitter, or (in the analogue world) at supporting cultural events in various European cities. Roma will shape the archive in all positions of responsibility – ascurators, artists, scholars,a nd members of the project’s advisory board. The curators will determine the contents of the archive: on the basis of their curatorial principles, they will select an gather works of art from the fields of film, photography, visual arts, theatre, music, dance and literature. RomArchive is thus addressed not only to Europe’s largest minority, but also to Europe’s social majorities. RomArchive is looking for a key visual free of persistent stereotypes and folcloristic clichés. The key visual should be minimalist, plain and simple and has to include all these subtitles:

  • RomArchive
  • Digital Archive of the Roma
  • Digitales Archiv der Sinti und Roma
  • Romano Digitalno Archivo


Call for RomArchive key visual is open to everyone interested in graphic design and the topic of Roma minority representation.


The winner will be commissioned for an appropriate fee in the common range for a cultural project funded by a public foundation. The name of the artist will be promoted as creator of the key visual

How to participate?

In order to participate please send maximum two drafts to [email protected] by 31 January 2016 the latest. There will not be an additional presentation. Instead the winner will be commissioned after the decision of the AdvisoryBoard.
