The Porn Ensemble presents The Porn Dialogue

9:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.

With Jürgen Anger, Tatiana Cerezita, Alexander Gonzales, Florian Manns and Kiki L’Objetive.
The Porn Dialogue is an exploration of today’s tendencies to embrace the human body as a field of interest by researchers, film-makers, artists and theorists. The naked human body has been the subject of interrogation of all beliefs since we first existed. Nowadays, we have to keep in mind all these pre-existing judgements when we carry out such an exploration, as all judgments reflect and represent a certain point of view. Can we still explore and discover the human body without being judgemental? An ensemble of five experts will take you on a ride into your inner desires and their reflections. Don’t expect a solution. We live in a world of cruelty that holds only banal answers.
