Timo Seber, “I appreciate your input” (2021)
Exhibition / Publication Launch: 17-24.7.2021
Location: Ufer Studios, Uferstraße 23, 13357 Berlin
s-l-i-c-e is proud to announce Heterosexual Panic, a large-scale installation and publication launch by Timo Seber and MYSTI.
The exhibition title Heterosexual Panic derives from ‘Homosexual / Gay Panic’, which is a term used in the USA as a legal defence strategy. It is intended to justify a temporary lack of control, triggered by unwanted, sexual approaches by same-sex people, which lead to violent outbreaks and murder. Scientific attempts to justify Homosexual Panic as temporary insanity, are part of a system that legitimises an amalgam of irrational fears, hatred, and structural discrimination against homosexuality. Inverting the term, Seber and MYSTI’s Heterosexual Panic considers homosexual narratives within a world that consistently re-establishes heterosexuality as the standard for coexistence.
Heterosexual Panic coincides with Timo Seber’s exhibition I'd Appreciate Your Input at Galerie Tobias Naehring 02.07.2021 - 28.08.2021, and with Tanz Nacht at Ufer Studios 21-24.07.2021.

MYSTI, a soured queen, prefers not to write about art like notches on a bedpost the way most artist bios get read.
