«Rumantsch è...» – Travelling exhibition on Rhaeto-Romance language culture
The travelling exhibition «Rumantsch è...» raises awareness of Romansh, contributes to networking and calls on visitors to "sow language" themselves.
Until the year 1100, people spoke Romansh far beyond today's cantonal borders of Graubünden. The language area extended in the north to Feldkirch and thus included a large part of today's Austrian state of Vorarlberg. People in Sargans and Walensee also spoke Romansh. Rhaeto-Romanic-sounding field names such as Prapafir, an area in the municipality of Wartau in the Werdenberg, still bear witness to this today. This is just one of the exciting aspects of the exhibition «Rumantsch è...».
In addition to looking back, visitors to the exhibition will also learn where most Rhaeto-Romanic speakers live in Switzerland today outside the canton of Graubünden and how they stay in touch with their mother tongue in clubs and groups. The five idioms and the Rumantsch Grischun and how different terms are written and pronounced in the idioms are also discussed in more detail.
New trends such as comics and games, which have already been published in Romansh and show how lively the language still is, are also included. For example, the computer game "Mundaun", which has already been benevolently described in the "Washington Post".
The exhibition «Rumantsch è...» wanders through Switzerland. Under www.rumantsch-e.ch/ you will find information on the hiking locations. The exhibition can also be experienced online there. It is a project of the Canton of Graubünden, developed in cooperation with Lia Rumantscha, Kulturförderung Graubünden and the Conference of Cantonal Governments.
Inauguration with musical accompaniment and aperitif on Friday, June 17, 2022, 17:00, at the Bogn Engiadina Scuol (Passerelle), Via dals Bogns 323, 7550 Scuol.
