Course aim

This course will be dedicated to the broadly understood issue of portrait in terms of painting and in the context of queer history. The starting-point for developing new works will be stories, gossip, legends and private memories as well as official history.

As part of the course, students will be able to learn new techniques and develop existing painting skills, as well as to create new works in a dialogue based on individual corrections and conversations. At the same time, the axis of the classes will be a series of meetings during which students will learn about queer history and aspects of the presence and absence of non-heteronormative persons in official narratives.

The classes will also allow students to become acquainted with the archives and lesser‑known queerstories, with particular emphasis on the countries of Central and Eastern Europe. This part will take the form of presentations and group workshops.
