Teufelssee

Kai Teichert, artist

 

The drawings are based on the theme of Teufelsee, a small lake in the middle of the forest Grunewald in Berlin. The area draws a wide range of people looking to bathe in the sun or swim in the water. Although Teufelssee means Devil's Lake, it has also become a Garden of Eden. Young families bring their kids. Skinny full bearded hipsters lay side by side with a couple of chubby skinheads. Lesbians kiss in front of a group of young men trying to cure their hangovers. An allover tattooed mother breastfeeds her newborn child, while a middle-aged man snore in the sun and a couple of young girls discuss their recent love affairs. Teufelsee is a place where the soul of Berlin is breathing, and one can feel how wide and open the heart of Berlin has become.’

Opening Reception: March 12, 6-8 pm

On the Domestic Front: Scenes of Everyday Queer Life

Curated by James M. Saslow

 

On the Domestic Front features over 80 works from the Leslie-Lohman Museum collection and a few strategic loans reveal much about the social history of LGBT life today, yesterday, and nearly a century before yesterday and answers the question, "What do gay people do when they're not having sex?"


This exhibition is timely in a decade that has seen the unprecedented mushrooming of gay marriage, child-rearing, and domesticity, and increasing acceptance both legally and socially. The thrust of queer politics has shifted from asserting our right to be different and erotic toward demanding the rights of everyone else. The show will contribute to a long-running socio-political debate within the LGBTQ world: are we, apart from our sexuality, “just like everyone else.”

Opening Reception: August 14, 6 - 8 pm
