Art & Porn

In collaboration with ARoS

5 oct – 12 jan 2020 Opening: 4 oct 2019 18:00

To mark the fiftieth anniversary of lifting the ban on visual pornography in Denmark, Kunsthal Charlottenborg presents in collaboration with ARoS the group exhibition Art & Porn.

The exhibition presents the development in art from the 60s legalization of visual pornography to the current fourth-wave feminism, and highlights how art is influenced by changing the law on pornography. What are the implications when the boundaries of what citizens may be faced with in public spaces change from one day to the next?

The exhibition opens with the famous artwork Sex-Paralysappeal (1936) by the artist Wilhelm Freddie (1909-1995). The discussions that followed in the wake of Wilhelm Freddie’s work contributed significantly to Denmark, as the first country, lifting the ban on pornography in 1969.
