Genderqueer - exhibition by Lidia Krawczyk and Wojtek Kubiak

Lidia Krawczyk& Wojtek Kubiak started realising projects together in 2004. They deal with paintings, photography, and video. Their area of research includes issues connected with gender, sexuality, social structures of power, and hegemony. They cooperate with Culture for Tolerance festival, and other social activities. From 2005, they have been working on the project Genderqueer, an attempt to illustrate notions and situations which transcend the culturally accepted definitions of gender and sexuality (painting, photography, film and sculpture).

She is an artist, feminist critic, the editor of ‘uniGENDER’ magazine, and the editor-in-chief of ‘teksty.bunkier.art.pl’ magazine. She is a curator and coordinator of exhibitions, for example: Karol Radziszewski, Backstage (2011), Joanna Pawlik, Balance (2010), Naughty (2010), Prague Biennale 4 (2009), Ok! Wyspiański (2008).
