69 positions [UITVERKOCHT]
Excesses, nudity, orgy eroticism, ritualistic pleasure, audience participation and political engagement, all expressions of the sexual utopia particular to the counterculture and experimental performances of the 60’s. This guided tour through an archive of sexual performances serves as a filter for Mette Ingvartsen to explore unresolved issues about sexuality in contemporary practices today. In doing so, her body turns into a field of physical experimentation and uncanny sexual practices emerge in relation to the environment that surrounds her. 69 positions leads visitors through a space with performances, books, films, texts and images brought alive through movement and speech in order to experience the connection between the intimate sphere and public space. Ingvartsen places sexuality, the relation between the politics of the body and structures of society in focus.
