Queer Cabinet. El museo revisitado en clave homoerótica

Among the cultural activities on during Madrid World Pride 2017, 'Queer Cabinet' (with the subtitle translated as 'The museum revisited with a homoerotic code') is an installation that proposes a re-reading of a selection of pieces from the collection of Madrid's National Museum of Decorative Arts, putting a work from the museum up against another from visual artist David Trullo. The selection is based on classic themes developed by artists since ancient times, and which have had a determining influence on the construction of the imaginary and Western homoerotic identity. Thus a dialogue or a confrontation is established, as the pieces are redefined and subject to other interpretations from a queer perspective.
