About this event

Retramp Gallery will present an installation of Marc Vallée’s 2017 self-published zine Documenting Thierry of french male sex worker and political activist Thierry Schaffauser. The out of print publication is held in the collections of Tate Britain, Martin Parr Foundation and Maison Européenne de la Photographie (MEP) in Paris.

“Ok, so, my name is Thierry Schaffauser, I’m a sex worker, or a whore if you want, I’m queer, I’m a drug user, I’m a migrant, and recently I’ve read something about sexual addiction so maybe I will claim that as well! What I’m doing in terms of political activism I do, particularly everything, for freedom. Which is related to sexual minorities. I started activism with Act-Up in Paris around HIV politics. I’m very involved with sex worker activism, queer activism, things like that...” - Thierry Schaffauser, London, 2012.
