InhalteThis seminar explores queer art history from its still veiled and coded beginnings - as a culture of the innuendo - at the turn of the 20th century, though its first openly celebrated pioneering expressions and life styles in the 1920s to the 1960s beatnik culture and 1970s new collectivity, and from the 1980s AIDS-crisis related activism to contemporary practices of queer performativity in a time of renewed political repression. The seminar will include live conversations with queer artists about their practice.

This seminar is offered twice in the autumn semester. Please enroll only once.
