Since the mid-1990s, Berlin-based Danish artist Henrik Olesen has used collage, sculpture and Minimalistic spatial intervention to investigate the social construction of identity and its historiography. Through the appropriation of source images and contextual shifts, Olesen probes the associations between homosexuality and its past and present criminalization.
