Gypsyland Roma & Sinti Saga is one of the few three dimensional objects of the artist that have survived. In full expression of his self-declared ›Gypsy DaDa‹ and following the Dadaism of classical modernism, the artist takes on a globe with humour and love of detail. As a consequence of his work on maps, which has been going on for years now, it seems only logical to work on a globe now. Beyond that, however, this expresses the claim of the universality of his utopia, which is not bound to one place. We see the artist’s recurring symbols, a Victorian man with a top hat, eyes, arrows, ornaments, hearts and an Indian wheel that also adorns the flag of the Roma. On the globe you can see the seal ‘GP’, like ‘Gypsy Power’. It is exactly this power that has a universal claim.
