Ep.78 Daniel Baker - Ministry of Arts Podcast
This week Gary Mansfield speaks to Daniel Baker.
Being from the Gypsy/Roma community, Daniel's work embraces and takes ownership of 'outsiders' perceptions, stereotypes and even prejudice of that community. By reflecting and sharing its multi-layered and complex cultural history, Daniel's visual information bridges the gap between perception and reality of Roma life.
Daniel has a PhD in Gypsy Visuality: Gell's Art Nexus and its potential for artists, from the Royal College of Art, London.
In 2019 Daniel curated FUTUROMA at the 58th International Art Exhibition at the Venice Biennale. He acted as exhibitor and adviser to the first and second Roma Pavilions; “Paradise Lost” and “Call the Witness” at the 52nd and 54th Venice Biennales respectively.
