  • Photo Exhibition: Romanian Diaspora in Serbia

    Annemarie Sorescu-Marinković, fellow of the fourth generation of ERSTE Foundation Fellowship for Social Research (2015/2016), organized the photo exhibition “Romanian Diaspora in Serbia”. The author of the photographs was Daniel Muraru, photo-reporter of “Ro-Press” (Romania). The exhibition was opened on December 7, 2015, in ŠTAB Gallery from Belgrade. By presenting portraits of Romanian citizens from different walks of life living in Serbia, the author of the project intended to draw attention to this almost invisible Romanian diaspora and, in the same time, to challenge the stereotypes and prejudices the majority population still has regarding the Romanians.
