Hoe wordt binnen de kunst omgegaan met pornografisch beeldmateriaal? In dit programma geven diverse kunstenaars en gastcuratoren hun visie op dit thema. William Wees gaat onder de titel De/Re Constructing Pornography’ in op de vraag of het mogelijk is om pornografische beelden te hergebruiken zonder dat daarbij dezelfde voyeuristische lading en seksistische stereotypen behouden blijven als in de originele seksfilm.

Keep Bright the Devil’s DoorknobsRichard Beveridge (US, 1978, 16 mm, 5:00)
A sardonic commentary on images of sex – from popular magazine ads to hetero/homo/lesbian porn films.

The Dog Star Man Has a Too Big Flaming Cock for the Sheba QueenFrédéric Charpentier (France, 1991, 16 mm, 24:00)
A few hard core images are softened, aestheticized and partially effaced ny painting, bleaching and special optical effects.

Purple Pirate BluesKon Petrochuk (US, 1985, video, 25:00)
Hand-processing, re-photography, looping and videographic manipulation of old “girlie” flicks and contemporary hard core porn.

Ecce HomoJerry Tartaglia (US, 1989, 16 mm, 7:00)
A meditation on homophobia, power and desire accompanied by a collage/mosaic of images from Hean Genet’s Chant d’Amour and gay porn films.

Blue MovieMark Street (US, 1994, 16 mm, 4:00)
Hand-painting old porn footage makes the strip of film itself the principal object of fascination.

The Color of LovePeggy Ahwesh (US, 1994, 16 mm, 10:00)
Re-photographed, re-framed and step-printed, a decomposing pornographic film is rescued and redeemed.
