[kings & queens] in Timișoara

The project Kings & Queens (K&Q) is an internationally acclaimed series of photographs that depict an artist alongside their significant other: themselves. Each image showcases the same person both in and outside of their beloved persona. Their self is lovingly exposed through self-juxtaposition and is constructed using highly precise photomontage techniques. The result is an intimate representation of the subject embracing themselves with affection or being embraced by their own identity.
K&Q challenges binary and heteronormative concepts by visualizing the multifaceted nature of each subject, aiming to illustrate the complex and layered self. The images confront gender stereotypes and tell stories about self-love and identity.
This event is part of LGBTQIA+ History Month. Recomanded for visitors of age 16+.
The project is part of the national cultural programme "Timișoara – European Capital of Culture in 2023" and is funded through the Inside Timișoara 2023 programme, implemented by the Center for Projects Timișoara, with funds allocated from the state budget, through the budget of the Ministry of Culture.

The project is cofinanced by the Embassy of Netherlands in Romania.

Organised in partnership with the Municipality of Timișoara through the Project Centre.
