Fixation – The Body & Sexuality in Art Film
SomoS presents the international group exhibition “Fixation,” charting the representation of the body, nudity, sexual identity and sexuality in art cinema and related photography.
By way of art-, still- and behind-the-scenes photography and promotional materials, the show traces the changing ways of the depiction of the naked body and sexuality, as it reflects society’s changing preoccupations, from themes such as “Sexual Liberation,” GLTB Rights, to fascist ideologies, Sex-Work, Automation, Internet, Cyberspace, the Bio-net and Surveillance.
Fixation coincides with artporn veteran producer Jürgen Brüning’s Berlin Pornfilmfestival Berlin 2015 presenting current erotic art cinema, taking place at Moviemento Cinema (opposite SomoS). SomoS will hosts several cultural events of the Filmfestival, such as a Casting Performance for Shu Lea Cheang’s new film project “FLUIDØ.”
