The Pornography of Everyday Life
by SAVVY CONTEMPORARY
The pornography of everyday life is an allegory of the numerous perversions, excitations, agitations, ecstasies, extremes, discontents, illusions, disillusions, frustrations, joy, satisfaction or stress we encounter on a daily basis. In the framework of the 7th Berlin Biennial’s Draftsmen’s Congress conceived by Pawel Althamer, the Berlin-based art project space SAVVY Contemporary will invite ca 20 intellectuals, artists, curators, lay-men, and scientists (from the West and Non-West) to express an aspect in their daily life that causes enormous excitement, happiness, or elation, as well as those things that put them in a state of rage, agitation, or disquietude. Since the Draftsmen’s Congress demands that the participants use the illustration to express themselves, The pornography of everyday life will go a step further and do a combination of an extension of the concept of illustration and the concept of the children’s guessing game called Pictionary.
Participants are Annette Jael Lehmann (Theoretican, Professor FU Berlin | Berlin), Bjorn Melhus (Artist | Berlin), Carson Chan (Curator | Berlin), Christophe Ndabananiye (Artist | Berlin), Claudia Lamas Cornejo (Art Manager | Berlin), Dalila Dalleas Bouzar (Artist | Berlin), Daniel Daoudi (Artist, Curator | Berlin), Eemil Karila (Artist | Berlin), Marcio Carvalho (Artist | Berlin), Maud Eglantine Piquion (Art Manager, Curator | Berlin), Nasan Tur (Artist | Berlin), Nezaket Ekici (Artist | Berlin), Paul Huf (Artist | Berlin), Pauline Doutreluingne (Curator | Berlin), Ralf Schmerberg (Artist, Producer, Facilitator | Berlin), Satch Hoyt (Artist | Berlin), Susanne Husse (Curator | Berlin), Van Bo Le-Mentzel (Architect, Designer | Berlin), Yassine Balbzioui (Artist | Berlin)
