reference: Tate modern has introduced to justice for domestic workers (j4DW) the wonders of unwanted things that arts doesn’t have to be expensive or out of nothing there is actually something valuable that often ignored during our workshop and visit around Tate. Since then, it stayed in my mind that before throwing things to the bin and recycle made me think of what other things I could do. I have now loads of ARTS collections for our own exhibit in Tate modern perhaps in early 2013 with theme ‘making domestic work visible in british society’.

112_Sunday_Astroboiname: astroboi / age: 29 / profession: artist & part-time porn actor / location: barcelona / weekday: sunday / reference: creo que tradicionalmente hemos delegado la sexualidad a algo instintivo, animal y siempre que pensamos en el sexo lo vemos como algo cavernícola, innato en nosotros. Yo creo que esta es una perversión del lenguaje y de nuestra forma de interpretar el mundo. La sexualidad en todas las especies tiene un contenido social muy importante, los perros se montan para establecer jerarquías, y en el caso de los humanos esto se lleva al extremo. Toda nuestra sexualidad es un producto de nuestra historia y por lo tanto es intelectual y esta radicalmente construida. Esto implica que sentarse ante una película porno a masturbarse no va unido a apagar las neuronas sino todo lo contrario, al conocimiento, a la intelectualización, asumiendo y construyendo una serie de roles. image by henning von berg
