MEAT/ING in the Internet - Tomorrow at Pornfilmfestival Berlin!

Tomorrow at the pornfilmfestival, Maria, Jürgen and me are trying to get some action going. In our "Onlive" event, we will visit Chatroulette and Manroulette from the Cinema, and with the help of a few porn performers and volunteer-exhibitionists we'll try to see what happens when public and private are totally fused together.

Here is the original announcement from the Festival's website, and a little video I put together from previous Manroulette performances I did last year with my dear friend Dolores Hulan. (we were literally in the middle of nowhere, AKA Essen, Germany. What would you do...?)

MEAT/ING IN THE INTERNET



An Onlive Event in English hosted by Maria Llopis, Ariel Efraim Ashbel and Jürgen Brüning

SUN 30.10. 15:45  ·  H S X




We live in 2.0 times. Interfaces are more and more interactive, and the commodities that shift and twist our lives are mostly platforms, designed as open sourced spaces that evolve through our uses. This era also creates its own unique version of sexuality: the ways our desires, fantasies and actual sexual encounters are occurring are also dependent on these DIY networks and the aesthetics they bring. In these online cruising spots, users simultaneously produce and consume porn. There is no distinction anymore between buying and selling, between private and public space, between porn star and porn spectator.

On the last day of the festival, we invite you to the “onlive” (online+live) event MEAT/ING IN THE INTERNET, an encounter with “Chatroulette” and “Manroulette”, two websites where people engage in sexual activities.

We will discuss these places, the possibilities they suggest and the sexualities they produce and incorporate live online interaction with random partners. People who want to take part in it are welcome to participate, as this is not a “presentation” or a “show” but rather an opportunity to cross the borders between private and public spaces, between masturbation and love making, and between exhibitionism and voyeurism.
The event will be moderated by theater/performance artist Ariel Efraim Ashbel (ISR), post-pornographer and co-founder of girlswholikeporn.com Maria Llopis (ESP) and Porn Film Festival Berlin founder Jürgen Brüning (D), and will feature some guest appearances, and you!
