Vruchtvlees.fm x Hyster-x: Verbeeld je geilWed 15 Mar 2023
A dazzling talk about sex and imagination
An estimated 15-20% of the internet consists of pornographic websites. They often leave little to the imagination. What can the mind's eye offer in a dominant visual culture? We will find out together with Vruchtvlees.fm and Hyster-x during this dazzling and imaginative evening.
Margot Delaet invites Jill Mathieu (Vruchtvlees.fm) and Uschi Cop (Hyster-x) for a talk about the power of imagination and sex. The conversation will be interspersed with interventions of erotic literature and poetry. As icing on the cake you get a live performance of the audio porn podcast that Vruchtvlees.fm and Hyster-x created especially for Pilar ASAP - The Sexual Feeling/Healing Edition.
What can the mind's eye offer in a dominant visual culture?
Jill Mathieu loves words. To her they are like sausages: you hang them together. From words to sentences and stories. In this way words tie the world together with stories and create order out of disorder. Jill runs a collective of copywriters called Goodcopy.ink. Usually they write texts for brands and it says 'buy now' somewhere at the end. But every now and then the collective takes a side step. With Vruchtvlees.fm, the collective made audio porn that whispers in your ear. No 'buy now', but 'come now'.
Hyster-x (° 2021) is the Belgian writers' collective for female and non-binary makers. Hyster-x provides a platform for new voices on hyster-x.com and promotes intersectional feminism and the visibility of women and non-binary people in the literary, journalistic, academic and artistic fields through the organization of literary evenings, book clubs and performances.
Margot Delaet is a poet and photographer. She has already performed her poems at Museum Night Fever, Orde van de Dag, Poetry Africa, Brussels Planetarium Poetry Fest and Poets in the Prinsentuin, and has published photos in De Morgen Magazine and Marie-Claire Belgium. As a philosophy student, she researches the role of imagination in resistance.
