Chewing Magnetic Tape
The gallery invited the artists to recount Porn focusing on pre and post moments, when faces are lighted by surreal expressions, when getting (un)dressed, when imagining, remembering.
YouPorn marked a turning point in the glossy world of Porn: it gave the users the chance to reshape radically the conception of sex, choosing, tagging and creating the categories they prefer. Categories that are many, free, creative and ever-increasing.
We invited the artists to recount Porn focusing on pre and post moments, when faces are lighted by surreal expressions, when getting (un)dressed, when imagining, remembering. To explore the non-places of Porn picking one of YouPorn's categories: it's a great challenge, but telling about Porn using porn would be too easy. This provoking exhibition will be presented in Blissland. Puritans will not be let in.
Blissland is an Art and New Media Project located in Berlin, run by a collective of artists and musicians. In the Land of Bliss every single atom is permeated with Art and every month we try to alter the composition by mixing atoms of Sound, Visual and Culture, in order to create a reality where it is possible to dream different dreams, see with different eyes, hear different music and think different thoughts.
