Book Launch of Another Hole / Sara Gebran
28 January Charlottenborg Kunsthal, Dansehallerne, Copenhagen
SUMMARY OF "ANOTHER HOLE":
This book is an investigation of the relation between power and pornography. A combo of personal notes, lyrical writings, an art object, text as essays and images as visual essays, on political thoughts, to dig into the relations between state power and individual erotic desires and an art object. It re-thinks the language utilized for pornography, taking it from the practices of individuals, to the practices of dominant corporate power that pierces through bodies and minds of people without their consent. Beyond cultural and political thoughts, the book is a choreographic and artistic platform that offers further potential for moving practices, for playing, and for sustaining happiness.
BOOK LAUNCH PROGRAM
In each city, the evening consist of a short presentation of the book through a performance, using selected pages of the book as a tarot card, includes fragments from the performance “A Land Where No Dragons Hide – and I Want Bright Shivering Lights In It”.
