25 August 2006

Location: Centraal Museum

Realcore is the term that the journalist, musician and technology researcher Sergio Messina invented for a genre in online pornography. It has to do with the appeal of realism in sexuality. Porn as a documentary, in which amateurs determine the content and play the leading part. New technological developments have started off a revolution in pornography, in which many social conventions are questioned, for instance, the dichotomies between beauty and desire, between fiction and reality, and between pleasure and commerce. The focus has shifted from the objective presentation of lust to the subjective experience of it. In his presentation, Messina, explains this new phenomenon, using visual material as illustration.
