We celebrate the first exhibition in Germany about Andalusian artist José Pérez Ocaña (1947-1983) with the curators and the Spanish Ambassador. The show Ocaña. Der Engel, der in der Qual singt focuses on Ocaña’s stay in Berlin, when he presented the documentary “Ocaña, Retrat Intermitent” (“Ocaña, Intermittent Portrait”) at the 1979 film festival. He 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.
