TO BE SEEN. queer lives 1900–1950

18|05|2022 until 08|01|2023


The theme of the exhibition is the turbulent history of LGBTQ* in the first half of the twentieth century. Selected exhibits show how queer life became increasingly visible in all areas of the public sphere from 1900 onwards — in art and culture, science, politics, and the military. However, as the movement gained confidence in its campaign for equal rights, so too did the strength of the resistance to it, culminating in the almost total destruction of queer subcultures and the spaces they occupied by the Nazi regime.

“TO BE SEEN” invites visitors to revisit these often forgotten stories and biographies. Alongside historical testimony, the exhibition will also show works by contemporary artists, some of them commissioned especially for the exhibition. They question the standard historical narratives and place them in new international perspectives.

Artists: Katharina Aigner, Maximiliane Baumgartner, Cassils, Zackary Drucker, Philipp Gufler, Lena Rosa Händle, Zoltán Lesi, Ricardo Portilho, Henrik Olesen, Karol Radziszewski and others.
