Towards an Intimate Democracy in Europe: Paweł Leszkowicz’s Queer Curating
This interview with Polish curator and scholar Paweł Leszkowicz discusses queer curatorial practice and the rapidly changing landscape for sexual politics and queer artmaking in Central and Eastern Europe. Focusing on his landmark exhibition Ars Homo Erotica (2010), Leszkowicz outlines how it traced themes of homoerotic desire and transgender identity through the collection of the Polish National Museum, and juxtaposed historical pieces with queer work by contemporary Central and Eastern European artists. The interview also considers the dynamic relationship between queer curatorial practice and its distinctive local and national contexts around the globe.

More about this publication?
- The Journal of Curatorial Studies is an international, peer-reviewed publication that explores the cultural functioning of curating and its relation to exhibitions, institutions, audiences, aesthetics and display culture. The journal takes a wide perspective in the inquiry into what constitutes "the curatorial." Curating has evolved considerably from the connoisseurship model of arranging objects to now encompass performative, virtual and interventionist strategies. While curating as a spatialized discourse of art objects remains important, the expanded cultural practice of curating not only produces exhibitions for audiences to view, but also plays a catalytic role in redefining aesthetic experience, framing cultural conditions in institutions and communities, and inquiring into constructions of knowledge and ideology.
