Description

This exhibition focuses on the first recorded moment in (European) queer history in Australia: a sodomy trial following the wreck of the Dutch ship the Zeewijk in 1727 where two young men were sentenced to death by marooning. Through photographs, video, audio and installation, this exhibition recontextualises social histories to help us rethink our present.

This project has been supported by the Australia Council for the Arts and Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts.
