Not just Schwul, but Super Schwul!
With this catchy title, this is a great nod to our German neighbors and a long tradition to show German artists in the gallery. A group exhibition in which six artists from mainly the Schwule Szene of Berlin are showing their latest work:
Photography Daniel M. Schmude, Johnny Alexandre Abbate; Pen and ink drawings Musk Ming; Porcelain Hendrik Schink; Linocuts Hannes Steinert; Watercolors Rinaldo Hopf.
An exhibition that shows the freedom of artists. From Schwul fairy tales to Schwul polka dancing cowboys.
At the exhibition, the new Mein Schwulles Auge/My Gay Eye will be presented.
On view through 27th May 2018
