On 23 February 2023 at 8.30 p.m., Parsec presents the second event of Diversions – Moving Image Showcase Vol. II, entitled OUR BODIES CHANGE EVERYTHING – Porn outside the norm, curated by Neon at Circolo Dev.
Starting from a reflection on the cycle of image production and subsumption, the selected short films investigate their pornographic nature in a meta-textual manner. Some of them make their own the awareness of the image produced and its use and consumption in the panorama of a pornographic society; others use this awareness as an opportunity to shatter the expectations stereotypically placed on pornography, seen as mere consumption, by implementing a fierce anti-capitalist and liberating critique. Others, finally, reflect on the very condition of filmmaking/performance and the representation of one’s body outside the heteronormative logics of mainstream porn.
