The Erotics of the explicit
Based on the erotics of Brazilian post-feminist funk music, this lecture-performance comments, and deliberately acts upon video footage and audio music. While the material is live edited together, I attempt to perceive what kind of epistemics the performativity of those female funk singers builds in, as well as its impact in Rio de Janeiro’s queer scene. In Brazil, Funk balls are known for their traditional chauvinism. Therefore, the interest of the excessive post-porn lyrics and vigorous gestures that the women and queer men endeavour while confronting the same logics that for so long have objetified them. The Erotics of the explicit runs for about 30 minutes.
