Tanja Ostojić´s work in The Deutsches Historisches Museum in Berlin

I am pleased that my work “Politics of Queer Curatorial Positions: After Rosa von Praunheim, Fassbinder and Bridge Markland” (in collaboration with Dr M. Grzinic) has been included in the “Homosexuality_ies” exhibition that opens today in The Deutsches Historisches Museum in Berlin. The exhibition is covering a total area of 1600 square meters, and documents 150 years of the history, politics and culture of homosexual women and men in Germany. The exhibition shows how same-sex sexuality and non-conformist gender identities have been criminalized through legislation, pathologized in medicine and excluded from society. It traces the legislative development of Paragraph 175 of the German penal code, which made “homosexual acts” punishable by law. Paragraph 175 took effect in 1872, underwent massive harshening in the Nazi era and was retained thereafter, being definitively voided in 1994. In addition to social repression, the exhibition also addresses the liberation movements of gay men and lesbian women, movements which took on a new dynamic after the legal liberalization in the 1960ies and transformed society‘s understanding of sex and gender identity.

Queer

Works by international artists such as Monica Bonvicini, Louise Bourgeois, Heather Cassils, Michael Elmgreen & Ingar Dragset, Nicole Eisenman, Lee Lozano, Jeanne Mammen, Zanele Muholi, Henrik Olesen, Tanja Ostojić and Andy Warhol comment on the exhibition‘s themes in a variety of ways.

The section of the exhibition on view at the Deutsches Historisches Museum focuses on historical developments in the fields of society, politics, art, law and science since the “discovery” of homosexuality in the mid-19th century. The section of the exhibition on view at the Schwules Museum* consists of contemporary artworks and addresses the present and future of gender codes and sexualities.

From the introduction by Tanja Ostojić:

Lexicon of Tanja Ostojić is an interdisciplinary, participatory research project, in which I utilise on-line social media networks and collaborate with women of different generations, diverse social backgrounds and different nationalities with whom I shares the same first name and the family name. Via personalised sociological research and direct social exchange I´ve created maps that document how approximately 30 name sisters have been migrating and what identity issues, gender issues and labour conditions concern us.

In the frame of the project, Lexicon of Tanja Ostojić, I had an opportunity to meet a number of my name sisters in Lörrach & Berlin (Germany), Belgrade & Kikinda (Serbia), Niksić (Montenegro), Split (Croatia), Ljubljana (Slovenia), Banjaluka & Bratunac (Bosnia), etc. We socialised over a cup of coffee, took a walk together, cook or eaten together, visited our favourite place, exchanged favourite recipes and engaged in conversation. I have organised and was leading several events with some of my name-sisters such as: Creative workshop in terracotta, hosted by the international symposium of sculpture TERRA (Kikinda, Serbia 2013) and the Talk Show “Lexicon of Tanja Ostojić”, HKW Berlin…

Tanja Ostojić (*1972 Yugoslavia) is known for her political performances involving her own social figure. Her recent works, such as Looking for a Husband with EU-Passport, Crossing Borders Series and Naked Life, focus on various aspects of migration, but also include feminist ideas. The texts and images in this book are composed by outstanding Balkan, EU and US theorists and expand on the themes explored in this body of work, supplying additional insights. The book comprises colour images, written descriptions and commentaries on the three larger projects by the artist, as well as transcripts from discussions carried out in the framework of the actual works.

“The real scandal of her work lay not in its sexual explicitness, but in how it located sex at the centre of European politics.” – Judith Surkis

“The expelled, the displaced, the ghettoised, the imprisoned, the immigrated, the war refugees and the Roma: all these marginalised and excluded people treated as “homo sacer” are subjects of Tanja Ostojić’s interest.” – Suzana Milevska
