Queer art has been concerned with intimacy at least since the photographer Nan Goldin began documenting her own life with unsparing closeness in the 1980s. It reveals the relationship between public and private in a special way.

Although making intimacy public is risky for queer minorities, new forms of intimacy have constantly emerged, especially in Berlin - from joint celebrations to darkroom sex to polyamorous relationships.

These forms of life are framed by media and pharmacological developments. Digitalisation has left its mark here, as has the history of medicine from HIV/AIDS to Covid 19.

The exhibition Intimacy shows about 30 positions of queer contemporary art on these topics: from photographs, painting and sculpture to video installations and films.

Among others with
  • AA Bronson,
  • Abel Burger,
  • Elijah Burgher,
  • Simon Fujiwara,
  • Nan Goldin,
  • Florian Hetz,
  • Donna Huanca,
  • Victor Luque,
  • Michaela Melián,
  • Slava Mogutin,
  • Spyros Run,
  • Paul Sepuya
  • and Tejal Shah.
