Art historian Gregory Salter considers Freud’s paintings of queer and marginalised bodies in the age of Section 28, the early years of HIV/AIDS, and preoccupations about class and gender. As part of our ‘New Perspectives on Freud’ series, Salter examines Freud’s paintings of gay men, the queer performer Leigh Bowery, and Sue Tilley – the subject of Freud’s famous ‘Benefits Supervisor’ series – from the 1980s and 90s.
