REALCORE – The revolution of digital porno

A show by Sergio Messina

In his monologue with 100 explicit images (unsuitable for children) Sergio Messina, an artist and writer (among other things, has a section on the High Sex Rolling Stone), argues that what he calls Realcore, porn amateurs exchanged free of charge network, not only is substantially different from the pornography industry, but is the wind bearer of a revolutionary in many ways – whether it is true, as Joseph Beuys, that “We are the revolution.” “The multimedia show of his travels among enthusiasts Realcore is a succession of unforgettable images and humor. The tone of Messina is a lesson in academic sexology as the Norwegian Death Metal’s X factor:” The show is not a conference or presentation of research, “Messina notes.” It ‘s the final product: an anthropological stand-up. The book will be like the live album of a band, useful to repeat the experience but not as powerful as the original. ”

“His latest research has led to interest from a anthropological point of view, political and aesthetic imagination amateur porn on the web, usually appeared in the late ’90s. The word Realcore comes from two words Softcore (sex totally simulated) and Hardcore (real sex on camera but performative), used to describe pornography. But the term Realcore goes further and describes the production that comes from real people with real desires, which is real sex, not only for the presence camera. Messina exhibited in a show impressions and thoughts on this phenomenon, a practice where new technologies are combined with sexual desires of ordinary people, whatever that is. ”
