Ceija Stojka: Work linked to the self

By Fabienne Neuquelman-Denis

This article invites us to discover the drawings and paintings of Ceija Stojka. The central theme of her work is the genocide of Romini and Sinti people and her first-person account of life in the concentration camps.

Stojka’s use of certain archetypal images is also studied.
