Description

At the turn of the century, in the shade of Cambridge’s cloisters, a young E.M. Forster conceals his passion for other men, even as he daydreams about the sun-warmed bodies of ancient Greece. Under the dazzling lights of interwar Paris, Josephine Baker dances her way to fame and fortune and discovers sexual freedom backstage at the Folies Bergère. And on Jersey, in the darkest days of Nazi occupation, the transgressive surrealist Claude Cahun mounts an extraordinary resistance to save the island she loves, scattering hundreds of dissident artworks along its streets and shorelines. ‘Nothing Ever Just Disappears’ brings to life the stories of seven remarkable figures and illuminates the connections between where they lived, who they loved, and the art they created.
