Alberto García del Castillo is a Spanish-born “faggot curator and writer” and chief curator of the Buenos Tiempos, Int. online exhibition space dealing with “faggotry as it is today”. With Retrospective, his first novel (originally published by Shelter Press in 2014), he has created a kind of comedy-science fiction novelette, exploring “faggotry” in the art world and flaunting otherness.
The text celebrates beautiful homosexuals and depicts a “retour-au-passé in contemporary painting”, comes with a story called ‘Thumbs-Up’, and another titled ‘Why Homos Are Better’, as well as a drawing by Jurgen Ots, a photograph by César Segarra, and a poem by Lars Laumann. The launch will be accompanied by a reading from del Castillo at 8pm.
