In the Zeitgeist of sexual diversity, the restrictive code of social media for images of the human body is an unnecessary constraint for artists and creatives. Countless creators are regularly censored and blocked - even deleted - by the networks for their work. The group exhibition #UNCENSOREDBERLIN deals with those images that are affected by this form of censorship and offers the participating artists a platform to express themselves freely.

SOLOS, DIPTYCHS, TRIPTYCHS, FOURSOMES AND TRIPS
“We were born from original sin. Adam bit the apple and that’s why my grandmother used to go to church every Sunday to worship bleeding Christs and weeping Virgin Maries, to ask for forgiveness. She would bring home churros con chocolate and obituaries and indulge in the S&M aesthetics of the Catholic Church. That’s what brought her to heaven. At least I hope, for that was her plan.
Being a faggot, I don’ carry any cross but my closet. It’s invisible to others, but transparent to me. And I wouldn’t say it’s a baggage, because it’s empty: a void, hungry for acceptance.
Everybody has one. Everybody deals with it the best they can.” - Victor Luque.
In Victor’s solo exhibition “Open end“, he juxtaposes a range of images which at first appear to be unconnected, but reveal at close inspection a surprising complementarity. They confront viewers in their off-beat arrangement, but also allow them to make their own interpretations.

YOU (SOMETHING IN BETWEEN) ME
“It sounds very vanilla, but I have a fetish for water.
I was around 9 and my swimming coach made me realize what I wanted. Nothing really happened, just in my head; he and I, both wet. Earth's water has been here since forever. I just read an article about how probable it is, that we are drinking some dinosaur piss in each glass of water. This makes me wonder how much of the water in that pool was carrying already something of me and it was touching him. H2O filling the gap and merging flesh.” - Victor Luque.
