“Physicality is a key to liberation,” explains the museum’s organisation. “It is the starting point not only for a search of new forms of expression but also for breaking free.” With the aim to represent a broad spectrum, the six selected pieces are formally, geographically and thematically. For example, in Playback
, by Agustina Comedi
, we see the drag and trans community of the 1980s in Cordoba, Argentina; in Va-Bene
, Ghanian performer Brenda Jorde makes a self-portrait. And in Galatée à l’Infini
, the artists talk about the subjugation of the female body. Self-determination and appropriation are celebrated in Batería, by Damian Sainz, while Pirate Boys
, by Pol Merchan, and Journey to the CharBagh
, by Abdullah Qureshi, are poetic reflections on queerness.
