‘Eleutheria’ is an Ancient Greek word which alludes both to a sense of civic liberty and public responsibility. Focusing on queer perspectives on art and film, such is the spirit of this programme.

Paul B Preciado claims that ’we are the product of the systematic erasure of subaltern modes of knowledge around the body’. What happens when we speak of sexual minority heritage, or queer heritage, in relation to official accounts of the term?

With contributions from an array of European countries, filmmakers, activists and artists, Eleutheria 2017 carried out a mapping of sexual, audiovisual and artistic dissidence, focusing on the notion of heritage.
