Ever since the photographer Nan Goldin began documenting her own life in the 1980s, intimacy has been one of the central concerns of queer art. It reveals the relationship between the public and the 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 celebrating together to darkroom sex to polyamorous relationships. These forms of life are framed by media and pharmacological developments. Digitalization 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 to paintings and sculptures to video installations and films. Among others, AA Bronson, Abel Burger, Elijah Burgher, Simon Fujiwara, Nan Goldin, Florian Hetz, Donna Huanca, Victor Luque, Michaela Melián, Slava Mogutin, Spyros Rennt, Paul Sepuya and Tejal Schah.

Supported with funds from the Hauptstadtkulturfonds.
