Ocaña. Der Engel, der in der Qual singt is the first exhibition in Germany about Andalusian artist José Pérez Ocaña (1947-1983). The show focuses on his stay in Berlin, when he presented the documentary “Ocaña, Retrat Intermitent” (“Ocaña, Intermittent Portrait”) at the 1979 film festival. Ocaña created unapologetic queer art during the Spanish political transition of the 1970s. With his colorful paintings, cross-dressing performances and activism, he is an example of overcoming and an inspiration for future generations.
The exhibition is curated by Samuel Perea-Díaz und Pepe Sánchez-Molero.
With friendly support from the Embassy of Spain in Germany.
