Starting with the US-American artist Thomas Lanigan-Schmidt, who reimagines Christian imagery in a (gay) camp aesthetic, this studio talk hosted by art educator Benjamin Rowles explores the use of Christian iconography in queer artworks of the 20th century. Lanigan-Schmidt was an active participant in the 1969 Stonewall Riots, in which homosexual and transgender people stood together against systematic police brutality. EuroPride Vienna also celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. Lanigan-Schmidt’s artworks are currently on display at mumok as part of the exhibition Pattern and Decoration. Ornament as Promise.
