Daniel Baker studied sociology, gender studies and ethnology at the Royal College of London and also works as a curator. He has taken part in various international group and solo exhibitions and has already participated twice in the Venice Biennale: he was represented in the first Rome PavilionPARADISE LOST in 2007 and also in the second one in 2011 - CALL THE WITNESS. Baker's artoscillates between art and the spoken word and refers to the social sensitivities towards the Sinti andRoma. At the same time, his art reflects his own identity, which is conveyed through the senses and language. His art becomes a political issue that deals with "Gypsy aesthetics".
