In general, the approach to life among Roma and 
non-Roma has been very different, not to say 
diametrically opposed. The difference in world 
view has repeatedly triggered a wide range of 
reactions and responses - particularly among 
non-Roma (called Gadze in Romanes, the language 
of the Roma people) -  ranging from fear to 
fascination. Probably because artists themselves 
have a special position in society, they are 
often particularly interested in those who also 
stand on the margins of mainstream society. 
Thus, it comes as no surprise that we
frequently find representations of Roma in art 
history. "We are what we are" presents and 
represents current contempoary artistic 
positions, which develop an alternative approach 
to Roma people, aiming to distinguish
itself from the traditional preconceived notions 
and prejudices found in the various countries.
