How to queer a photo studio?

Collaboration with the artist Lisa Grosskopff as a part of Vienna Art week 2019 in the art gallery Philomena+.

Lisa Großkopf (AT) and Shiri Rozenberg (IL) transform the project space of philomena+ into a temporary photo studio.
According to the artists, photo studios are spaces in which normative structures of our society, in particular in terms of gender, sexuality and body, become visible in a more compact form. In the displays, the highlights of the (heterosexual) family biography are often presented. At the same time, one often encounters stereotypical depictions of feminity and masculinity regarding the subjects shown, poses, facial expressions, image composition, etc.
The Fotostudio Großkopf & Rozenberg in the Heinestraße is considered as ’safe space‘ where everyone is welcome and normative structures will be demolished.
