There are crucial (arti)facts hidden beyond official historical narratives; Polish artist and activist Karol Radziszewski seeks them out by speaking with those individuals whose voices have been kept silent. He calls it performing the archive, but others might call it developing forms of encounter. In following the footsteps of the anonymized ‘some-bodies’ who performed their lives in uncommon ways, Radziszewski searches for queer ancestors, not bound by genetic ties but through a family of choice.

The artist talk will be moderated by Zofia nierodzińska.
