Rebeka Põldsam

For me the most important key in contemporary queer art theory is what Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick wrote about paranoid and appropriating reading and what Renate Lorenz has written about contagious queer art practices. My main interests tend to focus on Eastern European art in past couple of years, while I feel lack of strong intellectual dialogue of queer artists in the region and therefore it is important that more queer artists would be more visible internationally.
