Art & Porn                                  

29.05.19 – 08.09.19

To mark the fiftieth anniversary of lifting the ban on visual pornography in Denmark in 1969, ARoS and Kunsthal Charlottenborg in Copenhagen have joined forces to show the group exhibition Art & Porn. The exhibition highlights how art was 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 work Sex-Paralysappeal (1936) by the artist Wilhelm Freddie (1909-1995). The work illuminates the awkward feelings instilled by sexual and erotic imagery in the past. 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. The exhibition features works by many Danish and international artists, including Annie Sprinkle, Bruce Conner, Ellen Cantor, Elmgreen & Dragset, and Jeff Koons.

When the exhibition finishes at ARoS in the autumn of 2019, it will move on to Kunsthal Charlottenborg.
