Abstract
This interview with Polish curator and scholar Paweł Leszkowicz discusses queer curatorial practice and the rapidly changing landscape for sexual politics and queer artmaking in Central and Eastern Europe. Focusing on his landmark exhibition Ars Homo Erotica (2010), Leszkowicz outlines how it traced themes of homoerotic desire and transgender identity through the collection of the Polish National Museum, and juxtaposed historical pieces with queer work by contemporary Central and Eastern European artists. The interview also considers the dynamic relationship between queer curatorial practice and its distinctive local and national contexts around the globe.
