PORN TO PIZZA – Domestic Clichés

The eccentric exhibition ‘PORN TO PIZZA – Domestic Clichés’, curated by Tina Sauerlaender (head of the curatorial project peer to space) will inaugurate this Friday with a Pizza Party at DAM Gallery in Berlin. The group show takes into account our most common habits and obsessions, the four P words identifying contemporary domestic clichés: Porn, Pets, Plants and Pizza.

Photographed, shared, uploaded and watched to infinity, these elements occupy an ever-growing portion of the online space, a hyperrealistic territory where reality and its representation are no longer distinguishable. The presented works explore the impact of the Internet on today’s domestic spheres and personal comfort zones with great irony, drawing a playful, yet creepy parody of our behaviors and needs as a human mass.

Selected artists: Anthony Antonellis (US), Kim Asendorf and Ole Fach (DE), Domenico Barra (IT), Petra Cortright (US), Kate Durbin (US), Carla Gannis (US), Laurence Gartel (US), Emilie Gervais (FR), Claudia Hart (US), Paul Hertz (US), Faith Holland (US), Lindsay Lawson (US/DE), Jessica Lichtenstein (US), Patrick Lichty (US), Mark Napier (US), Eva Papamargariti (GR/UK), Angelo Plessas (GR), Hayley Aviva Silverman (US), Cornelia Sollfrank (DE), Jonny Star (DE).
