The result of the artist’s incursions into myriad collections and archives since 2008, the Queer Archives Institute started out by focusing its scope of research on queer memory in Eastern European countries, which was later extended to other regions deemed peripheral, for either economic, political or symbolical reasons. The collecting of items and information for the archive is done primarily through Radziszewski’s contact with the subjects and eyewitnesses of the events covered, privileging records and documentation of a living memory. The institute will get its first-ever brick-and-mortar headquarters during the Videobrasil Collection in Context #2 exhibition, in a bid to rescue and give visibility to a variety of materials associated with the history and struggle of LGBT populations, causing to resurface decades’ worth of their actions in the arts, in culture and in politics, obliterated by hegemonic historical narratives.
