Ars Homo Erotica by Paweł Leszkowicz( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in Polish and Multiple languages and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This exhibition was contemporary and historical, erotic and political. The title designates homoerotic art related to same-sex desire and love. Ars Homo Erotica is immersed in the tradition of culture while touching on the current politics of minority rights. It combines myths and the history of art with the contemporary and the debate on the condition of democracy. It builds on the philosophy of eroticism as an experience formative to humanist ideas and their affirmation of the joy of life and sex, even in the face of repression. The exhibition proposes a different perspective on the history of culture, the collection of the Museum, and the art of Central and Eastern Europe. Works from the collection of the National Museum in Warsaw as well as works of specially invited contemporary artists survey the history of culture, from Antiquity until the present, from the point of view of the homosexual imagination. This perspective points to a different canon of art and love in Western civilisation and liberates it of the heteronormative filter and taboo. The homoerotic is taken as an aesthetic and erotic quality present in visual representation. The selection criterion is not the artist's orientation, it is the theme or context of the work. To select works from the perspective of female and male homoerotic iconography is to queer the museum collection, to reach areas of the unconscious and to renew the methods of their presentation. It also aims to uncover and accentuate many forgotten artefacts and to highlight neglected meanings. The forms of male and female homosexuality have differed throughout history, a diversity of universality. Hence the transhistoric and eclectic profile of the presentation which introduces a world of images full of allusions, codes and subtexts. They were the only means of expressing homosexuality in times of oppression. The exhibition affords the opportunity to recall double meanings of mythological and biblical stories

Art pride : gay art from Poland = Polska sztuka gejowska by Paweł Leszkowicz( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and Polish and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the title Art Pride has it, this album takes the affirmative emancipatory perspective: too gay is good. Gay aesthetics is one of many equally important styles and narrations of Postmodern culture and democratic society. More than that, depending on the social and political context, it often unlocks the avant-garde revolutionary potential of art. In the Polish context, where homophobia is part of official politics and society is strongly heteronormative, gay culture has a subversive potential. This is why it is important to write about the aesthetics and politics of gay art in Poland. The album ART PRIDE. Gay Art from Poland, prepared by Pawel Leszkowicz, is a bilingual selection by the Author presenting Polish gay art from 1970s to 2010. Over 150 pictures, 40 artists and an in-depth commentary by Leszkowicz make this album a landmark publication
