Next porn workshop in Stockholm

Next porn workshop in Stockholm

Workshop on Pornography and Feminism
Royal University College of Fine Arts, Stockholm.
12th-15th May 2008

The aim of the workshop is the creation of do-it-yourself porn and the debate in the theme of porn and feminism.
We will have all the necessary technical material to start shooting: digital camara, video projector, a computer for quick editing and a lot of energy to create sexual representations from a subversive point of view.

In the theoretical part of the workshop we will show a selection of the work of a variety of artists working in postporn. We will provide a bibliography and a list of web bookmarks for those who wish to continue investigating. Through this material we will evoke questions and themes to be debated with the participants and try to arrive at theoretical and/or practical responses to the numerous unanswered questions posed by pornography in relation to feminism.

In the practical part we will discuss the proposals, ideas and dreams of short films proposed by the participants in the workshop. We will explore the best way to represent them taking into account the limitations of time and space. We will discuss our desires, our voyeurism and exhibitionism when creating images.
Each participant will decide individually what she wants to do with the recorded material and what distribution it should have. Private use or public screening (in the workshop) or internet distribution (we will talk about the diferent ways of doing it).

13th May

Personal. Very personal. What are our sexual fantasies? What would we like to film? What would we like to see in a porn movie?

14th May

Shooting day. For this workshop we will play a game: we will choose an excerpt from one of the films screened during the theoretical part. We will take the script and we will film a short piece based on the script in groups, trying to make our own version. The results may be very different to each other!

15th May

Conclusions. Screening of the material filmed the previous day. Discussion about the posibilities of editing and about the future of postporn.
