EAF Art Tours: Karol Radziszewski ‘Filo’ BSL Tour & Creative Workshop

City Art Centre event

15th August 24 - 15th August 24

Karol Radziszewski’s curated exhibition, co-commissioned with Auto Italia, collects rare photographs and ephemera to trace the history of ‘Filo’ Magazine, one of the first underground queer magazines in Central-Eastern Europe founded by activist Ryszard Kisiel. Begun in response to Polish communist police suppression of sexual minorities, underground magazine ‘Filo’ furthered activist conversations about sexuality, creativity and politics.

Join Trudi Collier on this tour of Radziszewski’s first Scottish solo exhibition; exploring the unknown histories of LGBTQ+ communities beyond the US and Western Europe. A creative making workshop to reflect on themes and mediums of the exhibition will be facilitated by artist Klarissa Webster within the City Art Centre.

Care considerations: This exhibition contains nude photography and illustrated archival material. The City Art Centre tour will be performed in BSL with an interpreter providing an English voiceover. There is step-free access throughout the building. Interpreters will be present throughout the creative workshop.

This event is in collaboration with Edinburgh Deaf Festival. Karol Radziszewski’s exhibition Filo is co-commissioned with Auto Italia, and supported by the PLACE Programme, a partnership between Edinburgh Festivals, Scottish Government, City of Edinburgh Council and Creative Scotland.
