Intimacy is one of the central topics in queer art.
WORD ON THE STREET: Intimacy: New Queer Art From Berlin And Beyond
Even though it can be risky for queer minorities to make their intimate relations public, new forms and versions of intimacy have constantly evolved, especially in Berlin – with people finding ecstasy on the dancefloor, adventure in the darkroom, or tenderness in their polyamorous relationships.
The exhibition “Intimacy” presents over 30 positions of queer contemporary art discussing various topics: photography, painting, sculptures, video installations and film.
Featuring artworks from Sholem Krishtalka, Rafael Medina, Del LaGrace Volcano, Elijah Burgher, Abel Burger, Simon Fujiwara, Slava Mogutin, AA Bronson, John Paul Ricco, Eva Giannakopoulou, Marlon Riggs, Michaela Melián, Vika Kirchenbauer, Doron Langberg, Kerstin Drechsel, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Clifford Prince King, Derrick Woods-Morrow, Emerson Ricard, Victor Luque, Spyros Rennt, Irma Joanne, Lucas Foletto Celinski, Florian Hetz, Zanele Muholi, Tejal Shah, Roey Victoria Heifetz, Annie Leibovitz, Donna Huanca, Cibelle Cavalli Bastos, Studio P-P, George Le Nonce, Josch Hoenes and Tomka Weiß.
The exhibition runs until August 30th at the Schwules Museum.
