︎ Concept






Did you ever ask yourself why fetishism and S&M are so popular in German sexual cultures? The Gegen season is back in Berlin in time trying to answer this question, exactly one week before the advent of FOLSOM as the mainstream liturgy for the corporate transnational homo/sexual fetish market. Applying a critical vision on the world of fetishism, GEGEN FETISH is the name of the event. We love to perceive the concept of GEGEN by adding spices and being aesthetic instead of cutting off and being antithetic. In this weltanschauung, fetishism is enjoying the pulsating life within the world of objects around us. Objectifying and being objectified  is multiplying the points of view about ourselves. In the same time we want to run on the razor blade of the spasm in this objectifying process. What is critical here is the need of objectification as the institutionalisation of a language in the sexual relationships as the base for a branding market giving norms-roles-statuses-identities. Is a Rob T-Shirt enough to make you a man? Is a corset enough to make you a dominatrix? And how much a codified language made by whipping, spanking, bondage, tits, cocks and balls torture, dildoes, wax, piercings and so on, traces the line between being a top or a bottom. a master or mistress and a slave? It seems the language becomes itself the s/object of desire where every emotion is defined, structured and  at its very end normalised. And this normalisation is exactly functional to the transnational fetish markets which try to exotize the fetishists to expand its market toward a cosmopolitan heterosexual consumer not to be suffocated by the historification of LGBT CULTURE. GEGEN is here not just to criticize but to invent new languages in an emotional crescendo where queerness fluidifies roles, interacting on the level of desire through a process of individualisation, s/object/ification, multiplication. To Penetrate S&M languages in its holes is potential erotisation making Irony a critical performance of power. Where fear becomes joy, GEGEN will haunt you.
BE FETISH. BE GEGEN.
