FESTIVAL EXTRAS & SOÇIAL 2019
Chateau Rouge & Red Edition (AT)
Salon Souterrain: Art & Prostitution
An evening on sex work, art & economy
Salon Souterrain is a format of the underground art space Chateau Rouge, created by performance-visual artist Elisabeth Bakambamba Tambwe, as a response to certain exclusionary dynamics within the European society. In partnership with violist Lena Fankhauser, founder of (CH)AMBER – an association for new chamber music, Salon Souterrain delves into various aspects and approaches towards this issue. It is a place of hospitality, a melting pot of people, styles and ideas and engages in the systematic practice of dialogue. It looks at works of all forms of artistic expression, but also with the voice and presence of contemporary thinkers, writers, philosophers, activists, scientists, etc.
In collaboration with Red Edition – Migrant Sex Workers Group Vienna, Salon Souterrain will deal with issues linking art and prostitution in various categories: prostitution as art, prostitution as a topic in the arts, the art of prostitutes, forms of structural violence and methods to overcome these structures in both fields as well as questioning our relationship to work in general.
