Description

Excess, nudity, orgy eroticism, ritualistic pleasure, audience participation and political engagement, all expressions of the sexual utopia particular to the counterculture and experimental performances of the 60’s. This guided tour through an archive of sexual performances, serves as a filter for Mette Ingvartsen to explore unresolved issues about sexuality in contemporary practices today. In doing so, her body turns into a field of physical experimentation and uncanny sexual practices emerge in relation to the environment that surrounds her.

69 Positions (Part 1: Unplugged) is an extract of the original version of the piece 69 Positions. It leads visitors through a space with texts, films and images, where memories of performances are brought alive to create a link between public and private space.
