Around the turn of the millennium, his working pace slowed down and the photographer turned his attention to the things that will soon disappear. The exhibition started on October 25 and has attracted more than 125,000 visitors since its opening until March 12. In Barcelona, Ocaña lived in two different apartments in Plaça Reial. Well, vernacular photography was a very, very big issue at the end of the 1990s. Your co-editors, the team of the museum… they never said these photos were queer documents? Alongside the collection are frequently changing photography exhibitions.

Present offers the opportunity to look back on a rich and intense oeuvre with one element in common: the photographer is always present. When first posted as queer photos on Instagram, they were to carry the burden of years of straight false framing. During those years, the tabloid published hundreds of stories about mujercitos being murdered, arrested in clubs and held at police stations. I wanted to show this collection in the museum for its relevance in the practice of amateur archiving. I think it had to be 1993 or 1994. The top floor looked like an old repair shop of pianos and other musical instruments. We worked with the money of taxpayers, so my opinion was that all kinds of photography had to be shown.

The point is: Why the Hell Are You Narrating Psycho To Us? Quietude and death have increasingly crept into his work, elements that are central to two never-before-exhibited series exploring still life and nude photography. Apart from their amateurism and repetitiveness, cross-dressing appears to me as a relevant theme in the photos. I decide to speak with Christoph. Not about this very sober style. At the time it was all about art photography, and there was a huge discussion on whether we had to show all kinds of photography or not. Us transfagdykes can do a lot of things with our feelings. From Luxury Product to Mass Medium.

The first-ever cross-dresser made everyone else a line-dresser. This is the information circulating at the museum. This selection is complemented by objects and publications chosen by the photographer for their special meaning to him. These included a house by the Port of Ghent and everything in it contained. As a young photography student, does he make choices that determine the rest of his further work? The staff member vaguely remembers sending the photos. Amongst others, a retrospective of was presented.

Bio Stephan Vanfleteren was born in Kortrijk, Belgium, in 1969. By theatralizing them, he did not represent them in the political or even metaphysical sense of the word ; rather, he brought them to life, embodied them, produced them, activated them as somatic fictions and at the same time affirmed them as not only ghosts in history invisible bodies with no discourse or agency of their own but also as lines of flight through which life evades biopolitical control. In this first episode we look at the early work of Stephan Vanfleteren. The caption of the Instagram post repeats some of the information that Caroline just gave me. Throughout his career, Vanfleteren has shifted between action and stillness, heightened human interaction and complete aloneness.

He began to record his home country and compatriots with the doggedness of an archivist. I left the museum at that time because of this kind of political interference, which had never happened before. Did you donate them as is, without any other documents? And they inhabited and helped make a world beyond their aesthetic endeavors, a world that devised innumerable means of resisting the forces of conformity and repression with radical hilarity, perverse pleasure, defiant solidarity—a truly queer world. The house was sold and I got the photos because I was studying photography. Ocaña was an Andalusian, anarchist, artist and transvestite who lived in Barcelona, Catalonia. The museum publishes the magazine. One eight-page unauthorized catalogue of gender performance? We agree to stay in contact, and I leave Antwerp to go back home to Brussels.
