Civil Disobedience: Poetry and Porn
The most underground queer exhibition of Athens is back at the scene of the crime. After the successful Civil Disobedience: Versions of Violence in January 2015 get ready to explore human nature's dualism on the axis of Pornography and Poetry.
We invited artists to contemplate on the pairs of: poetry-pornography, heart-body, love-sex, art-pornography, emotions-instincts, words-images, refined-vulgar and we are presenting the results in photographs and video in an explosive orgy of a fortnight on the basement of Vault Theatre Plus.
Anna Goula Vardinogianni, Stiofan O'Ceallaigh, Leo Kalovyrnas, Myron Pavenos, Zois Triantafilloy Sfakianakis, Kostis Fokas, Hiro Fay, Chrysostomos Galathris, Dimitris Gketsis, Nikos Stamatopoulos, ΠΛΑΝΕΤ ΑΝΤΖΟΥΡΛΑ, Juan Betancurth, Georgios Striftaris, Menelas, Alexandros Papadopoulos
At the opening of the exhibition Leo Kalovyrnas, Myron Pavenos, Stiofan O'Ceallaigh, Menelas and special guest Vassilis Noulas will be reciting their own poetry in Greek and English.
But the events do not stop at the opening, as part of the exhibition a special screening of legendary video performance "The Homonazi Effect" by Alexandros Papadopoulos and Calypso Larah which examines the homoeroticism of the far right will take place.
