The Austrian Embassy in Copenhagen, together with Aalborg University, presents a photo exhibition entitled "The Unknown Europeans". 

The exhibition features images of the following small and partially unknown ethnic groups in Europe: 

  • Aromanians
  • Sephardis
  • Kočevarji
  • Arbëreshë
  • Sorbs
  • Black Sea Germans
  • and Dogevo

The Austrian photographer Kurt Kaindl and the Austrian writer Karl-Markus Gauß took the images of people in everyday life during a journey in 1999. The goal with the exhibition is to arouse the curiosity to learn more about these largely unknown peoples and their cultures in Europe.
