Henrik Olesen — What is authority?

Out of Stock

“Henrik Olesen’s aesthetic is reminiscent of early conceptual art: terse, stripped down, and to the point. This serves his subject matter well as he takes aim at the heterosexuality of conceptual art, history, biology and other discourses. The book gathers several of Olesen’s projects about the overt and subconscious societal constraints put on LGBT people. Inside, Olesen confronts the reader with a collection of sodomy laws from around the world, and installations of his work gathering evidence of homosexuality in birds and dogs. This is an unapologetic, forceful, and beautiful collection of thought and action.”
