PORN – From Andy Warhol to X-Tube
By Kevin Clarke
When it comes to the self‐concept of gay men— pornography plays a very important part. From the discrete beginnings in the end of the 60s, when adult entertainment material was still forbidden, to the big studios like Falcon and Bel Ami, who created their own significant brand; from Andy Warhol’s revolutionary erotic underground movies to popular websites like x‐tube, where everyone can have his 15 minutes of fame as a porn star: The whole world is PORN. With comprehensive texts, interviews with directors such as icon Chi Chi LaRue and of course with a whole lot of pictures, PORN lights up a genre which isn’t considered dirty anymore but has become a glamorous part of our society.

Coming out of the historical closet – thousands of people were imprisoned and persecuted in a ‘reign of homophobic terror’ during the 1950s and 60s. This is a completely new look at the history of Europe over the last 100 years, showing how the upheavals in the fabric of everyday life and major politics were shaped by the culture and environment of the city. It encompasses the persecution in the 50s of gay men and explodes the myths of sexual freedom in the 60s.
