| Olesen addresses the stigmatization and repression of homosexuality

Henrik Olesen (*1967 in Esbjerg) is one of Denmark’s most prominent contemporary artists. This publication features a retrospective selection of his works from the past fifteen years. In his collages, demontages, and spatial interventions, with a focus on homosexuality Olesen calls the power structures in our society and historiography into question. He draws on both contemporary as well as historical material from a wide variety of different fields, such as architecture, law, economics, the natural sciences, and art history. Olesen incorporates the homosexual body into spaces and interiors of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, calling attention to the general repression of homosexuality as well as the ways it has been misleadingly represented by history. Exhibition schedule: Malmö Konsthall, December 4, 2010–January 30, 2011 | MoMA, Projects Gallery, New York, February 9–May 23, 2011 | Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Basel, May 14–September 11, 2011
