Karol Radziszewski’s curated exhibition 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 BSL 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 or mediums of the show. 
 
*This exhibition contains nude photography and illustrated archival material.
