Porn as Pedagogy aims to EXPAND representations of sexuality, gender and desire, CHALLENGE heterosexist, cis dominance of sexual imagery AND RE-EDUCATE our sexual selvesssss!!!!!!!!!
(no racism, no sexism, no classism, no homophobia, no transphobia, no biophobia. okay, cool.)
BEDFELLOWS is a hot-blooded research project led by artists Chloe Cooper, Phoebe Davies and Jenny Moore. It’s about sex. Sex as education. Sex re-education. We're currently investigating sexual identities, desire, consent, and feminist porn. As artists and sexually autonomous creatures in the world, we want to create tools together to resist the heterosexist, masculinist sex education we receive everyday from people in our families, on our TVs, in our house of commons and in the bank. We want to use our artistic means to produce counter-narratives.
The project is on-going, but it's taken shape most recently as a monthly research group for peers / artists / writers / thinkers / people interested in developing alternative sex ed models; a residency at AirSpace Gallery in Stoke-on-Trent, consent workshops for Sixth Forms, a radio interview, a club night, workshops, and open access research centre at Tate, an ongoing workshop/performance called SEX TALK MTG in various locations like galleries and universities, and an upcoming DIY Workshop at National Theatre Studios.
