#097 The Pornographic Kaleidoscope
Pornography and erotic art has followed the course of human existence – the tendency to create art that arouses has always been there. Pornographic content continously finds ways to adapt itself to society, from ancient examples like the Venus of Willenford (28.000-25.000 BCE), to modern social media platforms like OnlyFans. Pornography can thus be seen as a kaleidoscopic medium, which changes and adapts to the needs and changes in society.
How has pornography evolved through the years? Has the internet turned pornography into self expression? Is porn still controversial or has it been internalised into a societal norm? In the new Channel programme The Pornographic Kaleidoscope: The Evolution of Pornography into the Digital Age (link), Nickie Katrantsioti takes you deeper into these questions.
With works by Michael Brynntrup, Sergio Messina, Jeff Crouse, Stephanie Rothenberg and Michael Schieben.
This programme was created by Nickie Katrantsioti as part of her internship in 2021
