Product Description

With texts by Anja Casser and Wolfgang Ullrich
The catalogue documents Swedish artist Matts Leiderstam’s (*1956) solo exhibition at Badischer Kunstverein. The book shows new works especially created for the exhibition and various older work groups which Leiderstam has been continously expanding since the 1990s. Leiderstam is interested in the repressed aspects of historical pictures, which he detaches from their normative context within collections or archives and investigates from a contemporary point of view. He combines two contexts that are crucial for his gaze on paintings: The history of art and the history of homosexual culture. Leiderstam draws the attention to hidden homoerotic undertones, marginal details or latent connections.
