13 SHORT FILMS

81 MIN. + DISCUSSION
WITH: Mag. phil. Andreas Brunner, Univ. Prof. Mag. MA. Ashley Hans Scheirl, Adrineh Simonian, Jasmin Hagendorfer

The Austrian Porn & Retrospective shorts film program takes you through more than a century of our very own history of pornography. We begin with Johann Schwarzer’s “Saturn Filme”, produced in his Viennese rooftop atelier between 1906 – 1910 as the very first Austrian filmproduction. Until recently, the films were thought to be lost, but due to efforts of Filmarchiv Austria, over 30 short films were recovered. We are then introduced to the work of Ashley Hans Scheirl with “½ Frösche ficken flink”, a super-8 film produced between 1992 – 1996 which composes a loud, punk, post-porn, queer universe with different episodes in New York and London, full of loud colours and grainy images, challenging a heteronormative worldview. Lastly, we are shown a collection of eight contemporary Austrian shorts, produced between 2005 – 2016. We get an answer to the question, “What is Porn?” in Ars Erotica, bodies are sewn together and apart in Book, we see masturbation in a different light in Steifheit I+II. Human orifices are recomposed in I think we have something in common and more structures decompose in Hardlines. Things get humorous in Bad or Red, childhood memories are revisited in Play with Me and we find contrasts between brutality, love and beauty through bondage in Shibari.  

The program will be interspersed with a lecture by Mag. phil. Andreas Brunner on the history of Austrian pornography and its development, and a panel discussion on the topic of modern porn production here in Austria and the importance of confident and emancipatory productions. The discussion will be held together with Univ. Prof. Mag. MA. Ashley Hans Scheirl, Adrineh Simonian from Arthouse Vienna and the austrian artist Jasmin Hagendorfer.
