Lost Boys: Amos Badertscher’s Baltimore is the first career retrospective of artist Amos Badertscher in the United States. Between the 1960s and 2005, Badertscher documented hustlers, club kids, go-go dancers, drag queens, drug addicts, friends, and lovers who were part of LGBTQ+ life in Baltimore. A self-taught photographer, Badertscher (American, born 1936) worked on the fringes of the polite society into which he was born as an upper-middle class white Baltimorean.
The discussion will feature Kate Drabinski (UMBC), Joseph Plaster (Johns Hopkins University), Hunter O’Hanian (independent scholar and curator), and students of the 2023 Interdisciplinary CoLab, “LGBTQ+ Oral History Project.”
